The Schwab Rehabilitation Hospital addition was developed as an inpatient and outpatient facility for patients requiring physical rehabilitation.  The new addition  featured fully-accessible patient rooms, toilet rooms, showers and therapy spaces in compliance with the ADA.  The design team successfully planned the new addition to link three different buildings together at four different floor levels.  This was challenging effort because the existing buildings had varying floor-to-floor heights at each level.
