The Neighborhoods at Brookview

Brookings, South Dakota

The overall goal of the project is to move residents and caregivers to a more home-like environment, and move from the medical model of care to a social model of care. With the new model, residents are able to have choice in their daily lives and activities.

This 67,000 sf building consists of three neighborhoods of two households each, town center, support space, and therapy area that make up the 79 skilled bed replacement facility for Brookings Health System. The six households have 13 or 14 residents each per household. There are five households of traditional long-term care, and one Medicare transitional care household. The new care center is on the same campus as the hospital, and is closely connected.
