PRLog - March 16, 2012 - Representatives from Homestead Hills, a retirement community located in Winston-Salem, N.C., celebrated the official groundbreaking of a $9 million healthcare expansion today with a brief ceremony and reception.
Homestead Hills is adding 18 beds for Alzheimer’s care and 40 skilled nursing beds, which is a new service line for the retirement community. Executive Director Pat Halsey says the expansion will create up to 60 local jobs.
With a target opening date of February 2013, Halsey says the community will begin actively recruiting for open positions by the fall of 2012. The expansion will add approximately 36,000 square feet to the community’s footprint with nearly 30,000 square feet dedicated to skilled nursing and a secured Alzheimer’s neighborhood. In addition, the community is nearly doubling its existing wellness center by adding an indoor heated therapy pool, exercise and activity rooms, and additional common areas.
The ground-breaking ceremony featured Halsey as a guest speaker in addition to Wallace Saunders, President of Senior Living Communities, and Ellen Atkins, a fellow with the NC Institute on Aging. Homestead Hills is located at 3250 Homestead Club Drive, Winston-Salem, N.C. 27103.
