Maxim Rehabilitation hospital’s goal was to provide a comfortable, homelike environment for their patients to gain the strength and skills needed to live as independently as possible. Their customized rehabilitation program is focused around the individual needs of each patient and provides evaluations, treatment, and education for individuals. Each patient’s requirements are different and constantly evolving, therefore their services are tailored to meet the needs and interests of individual clients. The exterior design fits well in this rural community with a standing seam metal hip roof, natural stone and wood siding as well as a front porch available for dining. The entry tower brings natural light into the family waiting areas. The use of color and texture in the interior finish materials provide interest for patients and families in public spaces and respite areas. These respite areas are located as milestone points for patient walks inside the facility and provide resting areas with pleasant views to landscaped areas and the wooded creek. The physical rehabilitation space offers physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy as well as ADL training areas. This space also provides outpatient services for follow up therapy after discharge. An outdoor therapy garden allows additional therapy on a variety of walking surfaces and is connected to the walking trail with scenic views to the creek area.
