St. John’s Living Center

  • New Memory Care, Short‐term Rehab and Skilled Nursing Building
  • Jackson, Wyoming
  • 82,000 s.f.
  • $33M


The program called for a total of 68 units, including 32 skilled nursing, 20 short‐term rehab, and 16 memory care. A Town Square was to be created to serve as a common meeting ground for the residents, family, and visitors, and engage the larger community of Jackson.


The site sits on the northwest edge of the St. John’s Medical Center campus, directly adjacent to and facing The National Elk Refuge, with views of the Teton Range. To the south the local ski hill, Snow King, offers beautiful views as well.


4 smaller neighborhoods were created serving between 16 and 20 residents in a two story building. A Town Square occupies the building’s center and serves as the main building entry and houses event, music and arts spaces, a coffee shop, gift store, and café with sweeping views of the Elk Refuge. All units either face north to the Refuge or south to Snow King, have high ceilings and window seats with large expanses of glass, and are large enough to accommodate a living space as well as a bed. North outdoor spaces are natural tall‐grasses with a boardwalk, blurring the line of the edge of the Refuge, whereas south outdoor spaces include a memory care courtyard and vegetable and flower gardens.
