Healthcare Workplace Design Case Study
Client: Glasgow State Nursing Facility
Glasgow State Nursing Facility opened in July 2013. Governor Steve Beasher and Health and Family Services Secretary Audrey Tayse Haynes gathered for the ribbon cutting of the new facility. Glasgow State Nursing Facility also is the only long-term care facility in Kentucky that has been recognized for its expertise in caring for individuals with Huntington’s disease – a degenerative illness characterized by uncontrollable physical movement and the loss of mental abilities. The center earned the designation from the Huntington’s Disease Society of America. Residents began to move in to the long-term care center for individuals with mental illness, intellectual disabilities in September 2013.
The new center, designed by Lexington-based CMW Inc., is a one-story, 55,098-square-foot building with 100 beds. The contractor for the project was D.W. Wilburn from Lexington. The facility includes common seating areas, bedrooms, administrative offices, and conference rooms.
