9/16/17 – A groundbreaking ceremony has been announced for Agnesian HealthCare’s Christian Home and Rehabilitation Center. Construction begins this month and should be completed by late 2018 on the new $22.4 million facility. The new 50-bed nursing home will feature all private rooms, each containing a private bathroom with an ADA-accessible shower. It will include two wings for long-term residents and a short-stay rehabilitation wing with a 2400-square-foot rehabilitation gym. Rehabilitation services will be provided on both an outpatient and inpatient basis. Attached to the nursing home will be a new two-story, 30-apartment assisted living facility featuring two studio apartments, 26 single bedroom apartments, and two, two-bedroom apartments. The assisted living facility will also contain a library/media center, a fitness center and common areas for socializing. The campus will feature a central core area with a chapel, kitchen, administrative offices, gift shop, bistro and a two-story atrium lobby. And, finally, the construction of an 18-bed memory care facility will expand Agnesian HealthCare’s memory care services in Waupun to 36 beds. The groundbreaking is set for 5pm on Monday, September 25 at the site of the new 89-thousand-square-foot facility.
