The Jamaica Hospital Medical Center

New Nursing Home, New York, NY

RBSD designed the new $40 million, 120,000-square-foot, four-story Trump Pavilion Nursing Home and Rehabilitation Center, which replaces the hospital’s existing nursing home with a brand new facility that features modern amenities within a bright, home-like environment.  Awarded with the highly regarded, 2009 Building Award for New Construction, Health Related Facility by the Queens Chamber of Commerce, the new nursing home has two 40-bed nursing units on each of the upper three floors. These units are wrapped around a four-story atrium, which creates a bright sunlit entrance and gathering space. The day rooms and dining rooms on each floor provide glassed-in balconied spaces overlooking the atrium.

The project goal was to create a warm, welcoming environment, using design elements that would be comfortingly familiar to residents and an exterior that thematically integrates the building into the surrounding urban Queens neighborhood. To meet that goal, the exterior design conveys a residential character by using brick-like color and partial roofs, a stucco-like undulating façade, as well as landscaped buffer zones to break the exterior into segments, thereby evoking the scale and feel of townhomes.
