The Medical Resort at Fiesta Park is a beautifully renovated 65,000 sf facility, which makes use of the original 1950’s vintage heritage of the building. The multi-million dollar redevelopment transformed the building, which had been re-purposed and remodeled several times since its original completion, by incorporating original characteristics with a modern touch. The contemporary design enhances the original brick walls and fireplaces to coincide with the stunning neutral tones, offering clients a resort-like stay. The fully revamped facility now boasts a coffee bar, multiple fitness/therapy areas, eat-in bistro restaurant and movie theatre, which are all provided within a stunning environment with 85 private patient rooms. Prior to the renovation, completed by Enterprise Builders Corporation and Cauwels & Stuve Construction & Design, the facility served as a nursing home. With many of the bedroom outlines already in place, the main structural improvements included enclosing outdoor patios to form group areas and creating a unifying interior design to conform to the New Mexico Department of Health’s Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) standards. Additionally, mechanical units and windows were replaced to increase efficiency and cut down on energy consumption. The exterior of the building received some sprucing up as a fresh coat of stucco was applied, and steel screens decorate the building while serving as blockage from the sun. The spectacular details of the job came together to embrace the building as it once was and to create a one-of-a-kind facility providing superior care to clients as they reside in a resort-like Skilled Nursing Facility. This is truly a “home away from home”.
