Praise from the jury
* "We applaud the determination to do
WELL and what was needed to commit
to this."
* "WELL Building certification is
outstanding. Impressed that they
created a custom scorecard to allow
this to be replicated in future projects.
We like that they incorporated wellness
features specific to other industries and
included them into this project type."
* "Extreme collaboration with so many
players. The Menno Haven team
seems really tight and committed to
the project from all angles, and we
like that it flows to the staff and really
addresses staff needs and retention."

F

ocused on whole-person healing,
the Menno Haven Rehabilitation
Center takes that goal to the next
level as the first WELL-certified skilled
nursing building in the world. To that end,
it incorporates research-based elements
that promote the physical, emotional, and
spiritual growth of its patients. For example,
patient rooms are designed to reinforce
healthy sleep patterns and help speed up
recovery times by allowing plenty of natural
daylight during daytime hours. Additionally,
patient room walls, ceilings, and furniture
were designed with light reflectance values
appropriate for the aging eye, reducing
glare and facilitating color perception, with
nighttime safety lighting an amber hue
to ensure minimal impact on sleep. High
ceilings and full-height windows are used
in gathering spaces, as well, to establish
a physical connection to the outdoors.
Collaborating with the International WELL
Building Institute, the team also developed
a custom scorecard for the building to identify features that were intended for office,
multifamily, restaurant, and other building
types but modified to be appropriate for
skilled nursing. To achieve the vision, numerous stakeholders were brought into the
design process, too, including residents,
family, staff, food service, local healthcare
providers, therapy providers, and life safety
officials.
