In January of 2012 I wrote about The Walk Across the Road for Medical Services. One of Louisiana’s Department of Health and Hospitals’ new requirements of residential facilities which care for more than 16 children is that all non-emergency medical care be provided to children “at and by” the facility. Consequently, we are converting one of our residential houses into a medical clinic.
The construction crew has nearly completed the conversion of Shelley House into our new medical clinic on the grounds of Louisiana Methodist Children’s Home in Ruston. They are doing a great job!
To meet all the modern building codes, doorways had to be widened, bathrooms had to be gutted and redesigned, we moved walls, reworked exits and ramps. We have added additional parking. We remodeled for the long haul and have also put down new tile, new window frames, new molding, remodeled the kitchen, you get the idea. You can see in the photos below that much of the painting has been completed. (Yes, those are some wild colors, but who wants to visit a drab clinic?)
Enjoy these photos of the “almost” completed remodel of Shelley House!
Shelley House has never looked so colorful!
