The building's seven floors of fully windowed walls, shaded by concrete screening, are cantilevered over the recessed first story. Far from earlier warrens of dingy rooms and crowded units, these bright rooms were models of health care and offered patients views over Elmwood Park. The building is part of the supersized Carilion health care system (RK46) and home to the urgent care center, a thirty-four-bed inpatient rehabilitation unit, and other medical offices.
