Augusta University Health Roosevelt Warm Springs Institute for Rehabilitation

Renovation of the Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital and the Long Term Acute Care Hospital at the Roosevelt Warm Springs Institute for Rehabilitation. The rehabilitation center focuses on helping patients build strength, endurance, and self-care while receiving assistance with medical issues. The long term hospital provides 24-hour complete care from registered nurses, and support from other specialists such as respiratory therapists, physical therapists, speech language pathologists, and registered dieticians. Upgrades to the historic facility include replacement of two stand-alone water-cooled chillers, associated cooling towers, chilled water and condenser water pumps, and expansion tanks with a central chilled water system that includes an air-cooled chiller, associated chilled water pumps and interconnect chilled water system to serve both buildings.


The Roosevelt Warm Springs Institute for Rehabilitation received a 2018 Project Achievement Award for Best Healthcare Project Renovation/Modernization. Additionally, this project received the 2018 Sustainability Award at the Board of Regents Facilities Officer Conference.
