Taylor House was built to provide care and comfort to terminally ill patients and their families. This beautiful, 12-bed facility is conveniently located on the east-side of Des Moines. Taylor House offers patients and families an alternative to hospitals and nursing homes and provides patients with a "home-like" setting.

The HVAC system is a split system AHU with VAV reheat so individual rooms have their own controls. The plumbing system includes standard restrooms, a warming kitchen and a special needs bathing unit.
