Waupun Christian Home & Rehabilitation Center

(Waupun) A new long-term care facility in Waupun is nearing completion. The Agnesian HealthCare and Christian Home and Rehabilitation Center is a roughly 100-thousand-square-foot structure that will be located along Highway 68 off of Fox Lake Road. The $22.4-million dollar project will include 50 private rooms with individual bathrooms, long-term and short-term wings, a two-thousand-square-foot rehabilitation gym, two studio apartments, 26 single bedroom and two two-bedroom apartments, as well as a library, media and a fitness center. The Director of Plant and Facility Services for Agnesian HealthCare Dan Loest says the building will be installed with state-of-the-art technology that will allow staff to accommodate residents needs and provide better nursing care. Planning of the facility began last year following a capital campaign and the purchase of ten acres of land in December of 2016. Campus amenities also include a two-story atrium lobby, a kitchen, gift shop and a bistro. Loest says there was a definite need in the community for such a facility and they want it to be a part of the community for a long time to come. Construction is scheduled to be completed by years end. Staffing education is slated for early January with resident move-in dates scheduled for mid-to-late January.
