Long-Term Care

  • King David Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation (Aquatic Therapy)

    King David Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation continues to raise the bar as a provider of therapeutic services to seniors. This Long-Term Care therapy suite features an aquatic therapy resistance pool with a submersible treadmill and an adjustable pool floor.

    JWB is proud to resume our collaboration with The Designers Group who continues to transform King David into a state-of-the-art senior care center.

    In the aquatic therapy space, a shimmering mosaic of wall tile evokes the feeling of moving water and is juxtaposed with the sand-colored tile pavers to convey a beach vibe that plays well in the facility’s Coney Island setting. The theme of boardwalk and sand is also conveyed through the colors and geometry of the flooring in the therapy suite’s main exercise area.

  • King David Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation

    King David Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation (KDC) has always been known for high quality care and has recently undertaken a phased major modernization to set the bar even higher. Working in collaboration with The Designers Group, JWB has configured an elegant grand lobby to set the stylistic tone for the rest of the project.
    In addition to this well-appointed lobby space, Phase 1 of the modernization also includes a new café space for residents, families and guests.
    The café is situated in a high-story area of the building with tall ceilings and ample natural light. The aesthetic concept is to create the look and feel of a classic Brooklyn Diner. Both casual table seating and fixed banquettes will be situated along the window walls with back of the house functions located inboard towards the building’s interior core.
    Subsequent project phases will include a state of the art therapy suite, a “movie theater” styled entertainment space and a “restaurant styled” dining amenity space to supplement dining rooms on the resident floors. The approach is to provide the feeling of a “night out” for residents and family as they experience “dinner and a movie”.

  • The Phoenix Physical Therapy Suite

    This therapy suite features an open floor plan for maximum program flexibility. The ZeroG Gait and Balance System (trademark symbol) creates a safe environment where therapists can perform high level balance and functional mobility training without risk of their patient falling.
    The floor plan provides ample space for ambulation, activities of daily living training and exercise specific equipment including a Smart Car (trademark symbol) used as a driving simulator.

  • Advanced Care Unit

    A leading long term care provider wanted to minimize re-hospitalizations of its heavier care residents. The solution was a new 12-bed advanced care unit which supports a combination of higher staff to resident ratios along with advanced monitoring systems. We chose a clean, streamlined look to convey a high-tech aesthetic.

  • Skilled Nursing

    This skilled nursing facility embarked on a mission of culture change in a focused shift towards resident centered care.  Our firm was a strategic planning partner in helping to establish programmatic goals and their implementation.  The cornerstones of our approach were to provide more resident amenity space on the nursing floors and to configure the infrastructure to support restaurant style dining. We re-planned a central clinical core more efficiently by overlapping functions that could be shared and eliminating areas no longer required by today’s codes.  By reducing the core’s footprint, we were able to create a large central lounge with coffered ceilings and residential style furnishings.  New pantries with dishwashers, steam tables, and storage were carved out of existing dining rooms to support plated food service using china and silverware.

  • Occupational and Physical Therapy Suite

    An existing nursing facility needed to enlarge and expand its existing therapy space. The building’s existing footprint could not provide the space needed. We proposed a 3,500 square foot addition featuring cathedral ceilings with skylights and views of adjacent wooded areas. Icon Interiors chose a vibrant color scheme and geometric floor patterns to inspire and energize the space and its occupants. The therapy suite also features and outdoor activities of daily living area.

  • Occupational and Physical Therapy Suite

    Our design goal was simple, to merge five star luxury and gentility with cutting edge health care and technology. We carried this theme throughout the newly appointed lobby and amenity areas and into the new therapy spaces. This state-of-the-art rehabilitation suite was created through the conversion of an existing former dining area. Curved forms and finishes simulate movement and portray a great setting for rehabilitation giving this facility the look and feel of an upscale health club.

  • Therapy Suite


    We were tasked with designing a therapeutic environment that would allow the facility to take its program to the next level. By merging several large underutilized spaces, our team created a therapy suite of significant size and infused it with a lively aesthetic to create a sense of energy and movement. By capturing an existing solarium space, we were able to connect the rehab space to the outdoors.

  • Therapy Suite


    This Physical and Occupational Therapy suite was wrapped with glass to bring borrowed light into the surrounding corridors and elevator lobby. The continuous ceiling plane continues the illusion that the entire floor plate is one open space.

  • Skilled Nursing Unit

    We were tasked with bringing two vacant nursing floors “Back to Life”.  After overlaying the needed code compliance upgrades we eliminated functional overlaps to create more resident amenity space.  Our design partners at ICON Interiors created an elegantly styled spa-like aesthetic.

  • Occupational and Physical Therapy Suite

    This client looked to create a well appointed Activities of Daily Living (ADL) program as part of the expansion of its therapy suite. The inspiration for the design of the entire floor was a high end urban neighborhood look and feel. The entry to the ADL suite takes the form of a classic hotel lobby with elegant millwork and finishes.

When we design for our long term care clients we seek to create upscale resort-style amenities that attract clients who are looking for excellence in rehabilitative care. To engage these clients, we employ sleek lines to convey a sense of movement. To assist patients in preparing to return home safely, we design therapy suites that reinforce activities of daily living, providing a bridge between the treatment suite and home. Working with you, we plan and create several distinct functional zones brought together by a unifying style and aesthetic, including staff and clinical support spaces strategically located to provide optimum visual observation and accessibility. Our long term care portfolio includes new buildings, additions and interior alterations at major nursing care facilities, diagnostic centers, adult day care facilities and more.
