White Oak Manor, North Charleston  
       
description
 
The White Oak Manor nursing home in North Charleston is an older nursing home, originally built in the 1970's and expanded in 1987. While considered one of the best skilled nursing facilities in Charleston, the one-story structure had numerous four-bed wards, and inadequate administration area and storage facilities.The challenge was to eliminate all four-bed wards and provide new semi-private and private rooms while maintaining the same bed count, all within a very limited site area. In addition, the owner wanted to add a wing focused on therapy and rehabilitation.

A new 8000 SF wing, designed to connect seamlessly to the existing building, accommodates 26 residents in twelve semi-private and two private rooms, along with a new dayroom, therapy room, and nurses station. Six newly remodeled semi-private rooms with shared full-sized bathrooms have replaced the pre-existing four-bed wards. A new secure courtyard for the residents, accessed via the new dayroom, was created between the new addition and the existing building.

description
 
The White Oak Manor nursing home in Rock Hill is an older nursing home, originally built in the early 1970's. The one story structure had an institutional look inside and out, with numerous 4-bed wards and inadequate therapy, administrative and storage facilities. The purchase of adjacent property allowed the opportunity to eliminate all of the four bed wards and provide an upgrade of both the image and the facilities.

A new 15,000 SF wing is designed to accommodate 21 residents in 17 private and two semi-private rooms along with community living, dining and outdoor courtyard spaces utilizing the household concept model. The new wing also incorporates a fully equipped physical and occupational therapy suite and staff areas. In the existing building, semi-private rooms with shared full-sized bathrooms were created in the place of the existing 4-bed wards. Previously enclosed dayrooms in the existing facility have been opened up and improved to provide a more residential feel and a more interactive setting for the residents and staff. The major entrances and the front of the existing building were renovated to blend in with the updated and more residential look of the new wing.
