For Saad, creating a facility that is family centric comes naturally. We believe at end of life, faith and family become the things is life with real value.
The site layout allows for interaction with nature. It includes a nature trail, bedroom porches, and outdoor dining.
Because the project’s objective is the provision of full healthcare services in an environment that is intentionally “un-institutional,” its design is as approachable and familiar as possible.
The facility location within the region locates it off one of the top 5 major roads in the City of Mobile and well inside the city limits, an exceedingly centralized location. Moreover, Saad will get all the benefit of being inside the city while also enjoying a tucked away feel. A retreat or oasis within the city environment allowing for proximity to the major populations of the area. It provides close proximity to I-10 & I-65 as well the Regional Airport. Such proximity will allow family members to visit more easily.
Saad Hospice was established in 1985, as an Alabama based freestanding home hospice provider dedicated to providing caring, individualized care for patients and their families as they face serious injuries or terminal illnesses. Saad is one of only a few experienced and sufficiently sized operators capable of bringing a proven, industry leading, cost efficient operation into a new inpatient setting.
Saad Hospice worked in conjunction with Studio Sidewalk to design the facility. The design team sought to redefine expectations of inpatient facility design. The team wanted a space that felt like a home but also had its own unique presence that created an atmosphere where compassion, love, and community could flow freely.
