Sol Harris Day Architecture

The center is the first inpatient hospice facility in the County and the first LEED Certified hospice facility in Ohio. Aultman Hospital wanted to provide a medical facility on the existing Woodlawn campus that had its own separate identity without an institutional feel, more like home.

It feels like home, it doesn’t feel like a hospital.

Building Organization

This 20,000 square foot medical facility  features a 12-bed inpatient hospice that provides end-of-life care in a comfortable, peaceful environment with many amenities of home. Each patient's private room is large enough to accommodate several visitors and features an eating area and a sleeper sofa. The patient's bed is oriented towards a floor-to-ceiling window and atrium door leading to a private patio. The doors to the patio open wide enough for patient beds to fit through, giving them the ability to go outside and observe the serene view of the plush landscaping and acres of wooded property.

There are common areas for families to step away from the patient. The hospice center provides families a touch of home with a fully operational kitchen for them to cook meals on-site and large “family rooms” and smaller sitting areas to gather their thoughts. A small chapel is available for those of any denomination to pray or reflect.

Interior Concept

The colors and textures of the walls and furniture were chosen to be warm and peaceful with lots of wood accents, furthering the feeling of home. The exterior entry points of the hospice center are designed with a Craftsman style so loved ones feel like they are entering someone’s house.

Additional Services

In addition to hospice care, Aultman Grief Services expanded its presence in the new medical facility with a resource library, individual counseling rooms, support group meeting rooms and children's programming including both indoor and outdoor activity areas.
