LaRabida celebrated the launch of its new 12-bed inpatient wing. The unit was christened the “South Deck” of the S.S. LaRabida. The project marks the completion of a two-phase renovation plan that began almost 10 years ago. In 2001, the S.S. LaRabida North Deck opened with 37 beds. Both decks are designed with the cruise ship motif, playing off of LaRabida’s lakeside location. The unit’s spacious boast large rooms, impressive water views, and child-friendly nautical décor; each one has a view of Jackson Harbor to the west or Lake Michigan to the east. The South Deck’s cabins are bright hosts to red and blue furniture and 32” wall mounted televisions, each with a built in DVD player.
