Tranquility Hospice Austell
WellStar’s Tranquility Hospice is a two-story, 26,000 square foot residential hospice facility providing private, semi-private and two-room suites. Tranquility was northwest Georgia’s first inpatient hospice facility, housing terminally ill patients in the last few months of their lives. The site includes parking, a walking track and gardens. Each of the different living units is designed to provide natural light for the residents.
CDH was asked to design a 20-unit facility that consists of 16 private rooms, two semiprivate rooms along with two suites containing two rooms. One private room is designed to accommodate patients with infectious diseases and another is designed for pediatric use. A day room accommodates approximately six-day care patients. Common spaces for use by patients and family members include a chapel, den/family room, an activity room, a family dining room, personal laundry, library and screened porches.
Tranquility also houses meeting rooms, which will be used for continuing education, volunteer training and bereavement groups for families. This wooded site also includes parking, gathering places for families, a walking trail, and gardens.
