Stellar expanded and renovated this nursing home, which remained open throughout construction. The expansion included a new 10,000-square-foot, two-story building. The first floor features an adult day care pavilion and activities center, including a demonstration kitchen and volunteer offices. The second floor includes a state-of-the-art full-service therapy and rehabilitation center with individual therapy rooms, an open central area, a waiting room and reception desk, director's office, and workspace for physical, occupational and speech therapists. Stellar also renovated 7,500 square feet of the existing River Garden Home. Work included demolition and reconstruction of walls and floors, and upgrades to the HVAC, electrical, plumbing, telecommunications and fire protection systems. The renovated areas include the first floor, comprised of admissions and home healthcare areas; and the second floor, which houses an institutional pharmacy, central medical supply, a geriatric medical clinic, and a nursing suite. Design and construction meet with Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) requirements for patient health and safety.
