Tranquility at Kennesaw Mountain

Nestled at the foot of historic Kennesaw Mountain in Marietta, Georgia is an impressive addition to the WellStar Health System.  Tranquility at Kennesaw Mountain.   The 27,622sf hospice facility resembles a mountain lodge more than a hospital facility but make no mistake, it is fully outfitted with all the ecessary equipment required for a fully operational mini-hospital. 

Serenity and comfort has been the absolute focus of the 18-bed facility as each room opens onto a large deck which looks into the natural area and with a view of the base of Kennesaw Mountain.  The area is complete with walking paths, gardens, a natural bridge, gazebo, and an abundance of flowers and trees.Offering a peaceful atmosphere for the terminally ill residents and their families and visitors, Tranquility at Kennesaw Mountain also offers a chapel, serenely furnished with pews and beautiful stain glass windows; the latter which have ample opportunity to collect and disperse sunshine giving the room an extra special calm.  Family rooms with bookcases and fireplaces offer visitors and families the opportunity to gather while their loved ones are resting or when they need privacy while being assisted by the caring staff. 

With the homey atmosphere it’s easy to overlook the complexity of the building. This is a fully functioning mini-hospital, complete with medical gas and treatment areas.  While the patients, families, visitors, and staff are located on the ground floor, the patient’s warming kitchen and the large generators and chillers are housed on the basement level. Besides patients and employees, the hospice is designed to house the administrative offices for the in-home care hospice staff that support over 100 off-site patients. Offices for this separate group are also located in the basement.

Cork-Howard was honored to be chosen as the General Contractor for this project and is very pleased with how all parties worked together to build a first-class facility for patients and their families facing the most heart wrenching phase of life.  It is the hope and desire of all project members that Tranquility at Kennesaw Mountain allows those who reside or visit the facility to find a little serenity, peace, and calm during their stay at this lodge retreat at the foothills of Kennesaw Mountain.
