Lasting Hope Recovery Center?-?Omaha, Neb.
This project transformed a 96,000-square-foot building which had previously sat empty for two years into a state-of-the-art behavioral healthcare facility. The scope of work included a complete interior demolition and renovation and all new mechanical, electrical, control, security and network systems.
Patients and families arrive at the two-level structure in a lobby featuring exposed wood beams, brickwork and warm earth tone design themes carried throughout the building. This space and other areas, both public and private, are carpeted to provide a residential feel. The lobby is conveniently located adjacent to a 24-hour psychiatric emergency department with patient triage and crisis-assessment areas.
The center features 32 immediate crisis beds for a week or shorter stays and 32 long-term beds for three- to four-week stays for a total of 64 private rooms. Each patient room has a bed, built-in desks and wardrobes.
