2017: Building the Future – Beyond Better

While 2016 was an impressive year with more than 200 homes open and operating in 30 states, we expect to see that momentum continue in 2017!  It will be a year where we will see our first PACE Green House homes open in Michigan…and the first Green House homes will be opening in Rhode Island, where Saint Elizabeth Home broke a 20 year moratorium on new nursing home beds.

Here’s a quick look at how the year is shaping up for Grand Openings and Groundbreaking ceremonies:

The Green House Family Continues to Expand…This Time in Beaumont, Texas!

In late April ground was broken at Calder Woods, a Buckner Senior Living Community, on a $25.9 million expansion and remodel at their campus.  Two new skilled nursing Green House homes are part of the first phase of this project.  The homes will include 10 private bedrooms and bathrooms, open kitchen, hearth and access to the outdoors.  Construction begins in May and is expected to be completed by the end of 2017. The new space will also include 36 independent living garden apartments and enlarging and renovating the current assisted living area in the community.

With the construction of the homes at Calder Woods, this will be the fourth campus in the Buckner organization that will include Green House homes.
