Construction underway at The Heritage

Posted: Friday, October 5, 2012

Construction of a new addition to The Heritage of Huntington is currently underway on the north corner of the existing campus at 1180 W 500 N. The facility is a 5-star, non-profit, Continuing Care Retirement Community, designed for residential and assisted living, short-term rehabilitation, skilled nursing, secure memory care, long-term care and outpatient therapy. The addition will make The Heritage the largest senior living community in the city of Huntington.

The Heritage opened in June of 2001 and is currently a 168-bed residential and assisted living facility which includes a state-of-the-art health care unit. The assisted living section features one and two room living situations and the health care area has single or double rooms with private baths for each resident. The facility features 24-hour licensed nursing care and in-house physical, occupational and speech therapy.

The new construction will bring a 15,200 square-foot Center for Rehabilitation with a new large therapy gym and 16 private rooms, and the addition of more space onto the Memory Care unit known as Memory Lane, according to Jim Flueckiger, administrator. Flueckiger explained that the new Memory Care area will have a large family room, lounge, and bathing, dining and activity areas. Additionally, there will be three more private rooms and the new building will look similar to the existing structure. Flueckiger anticipates the project will be completed by the spring of 2013.

The construction will also include a private entrance and outpatient parking for the Center for Rehabilitation. Dodd Kattman, with Morrison, Kattman and Menze, Inc. is the architect of the project and Limberlost Construction is the general contractor.

David P. Souder is the chief executive officer and administrator of UMMH Communities of which The Heritage is a part. The group also includes Heritage Pointe located in Warren, Indiana.
