Chamber member Lutheran Life Villages celebrates new Coldwater Road campus with ribbon cutting
(June 27, 2012) – Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry is slated to lead a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open The Village at Pine Valley, Lutheran Life Villages’ new state-of-the-art skilled-nursing and rehabilitation campus at 9802 Coldwater Road, north of Tillman Road. The ribbon cutting is set for Friday, June 29, at 1:30 p.m., with an open house from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m.
The opening of this nine-acre campus represents the beginning of another chapter in Lutheran Life Villages’ 80-year history of providing premier retirement-living options and compassionate care to older adults in northeast Indiana.
“We’re very pleased to have the opportunity to serve additional older adults with this new community,” says Administrator Leslie McKinley. “We’re going to set a new standard in skilled nursing and rehabilitation by providing both the highest-quality care and a range of amenities and services that are sure to please.”
The new campus features semiprivate and private accommodations for skilled-nursing residents and 36 private rehab suites and therapeutic services for people during their short-term transition from the hospital to their homes. The nursing community and rehabilitation community both have their own dining rooms, and the rehab community has its own gym.
