The new Red River Hospital, an Acadia-owned behavioral healthcare hospital in Wichita Falls, Texas, is an interesting three-story, L-shaped building with massing that is playful, functional and visually appealing. The small footprint and relatively steep grade required a creative design solution to house a parking garage, administrative space, outpatient therapy area, inpatient treatment space, and a recreational gym. The strategically located 3rd story gym and fitness space address physical therapy, exercise and yoga needs, particularly for patients in the Military Heroes Unit that serves the community's military population. Terraced exterior areas make effective use of the steep grade, This project provided an opportunity to incorporate newly developed safety standards, collaboratively designed by JJCA and Acadia, into the plan.
River's Edge Hospital was recently the site for the announcement by Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack of a $500 million grant to improve rural healthcare.Read More
