The Cottages at St. Martin’s is the first residential-style nursing home to be built in Alabama consisting of 6 independent 10-bedroom homes. The Cottages at St. Martin’s is part of THE GREEN HOUSE® Project, a national movement aimed toward changing the culture of nursing homes across the country. As a pioneer in the state, St. Martin’s serves as a beacon of hope for culture change in long-term care. Three additional Green House homes are under development on St. Martin’s campus in Phase 2. St. Martin’s will eventually operate all of its nursing home services for 138 elders in Green House homes.
