Diakon Lutheran Social Ministries recognized the need for more space in the physical therapy area and commissioned Noelker and Hull to design an addition onto the existing skilled nursing wing. The addition created an additional 5,425 sq. ft. to allow for more equipment and better flow. A 5,490 sq. ft. addition includes a physicians’ suite with the PT addition. The adjoining skilled nursing and short-term care wing were renovated to create a more residential and homelike environment. Activity, living and dining areas were also included in the renovations. Energizing colors were chosen for the PT wing, while soft, warm tones were selected for the activity, living and dining spaces.
