Sunny Vista is a new 89,000 sf skilled nursing facility located across the street from the main Sunny Vista Living Center campus. The new facility offers private rooms for short-term rehab or long-term custodial care.

The main level features a dramatic two-story living room trimmed with ornate hand railings and a large fireplace. Other amenities include living rooms, communal dining, a therapy room and gym, chapel, salon, conference room, three elevated outdoor patios, a multi-purpose room, two 270-gallon aquariums and aviary.  All units and public toilets are furnished with a full-featured nurse call system.  Medical charting will be accomplished electronically using tablet kiosks located throughout the corridors of each wing.

The garden-level basement houses a commercial kitchen, dietary/nurse/social worker offices, employee lounge/locker room, mechanical/electrical rooms, and oxygen storage space. The laundry room features an Aquawing Ozone laundry system, which uses a state-of-the-art ozone cleaning process that reduces water and energy consumption.

 

Because the facility was subject to licensing with Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment for Life Safety, UBS also worked closely with the assigned State inspector through courtesy inspections to ensure periodic feedback and acceptability for those specific life safety requirements.
