St. Mary of the Woods celebrated the opening of its new 20-bed skilled nursing expansion last week with an open house and tours the afternoon of July 28.
The Trails Transitional Care Unit features 11,000 square feet in new construction. 12 new private suites and 4 split-private suites are tastefully decorated and individualized with in-suite Euro Spas and climate control. There are also expanded dining rooms, a new courtyard with benches highlighted by plantings around a captivating fountain and a new ‘Center of Care’ nursing station.
“This has truly been built with rehabilitation in mind,” said St. Mary of the Woods Administrator Charles Rupert.
Avon Mayor Bryan Jensen joined with St. Mary of the Woods officials in a ceremonial ribbon-cutting. Once known as a farming town, the city of Avon has transformed into a vibrant and thriving area where the town’s residents can find everything they need. St. Mary of the Woods is one of those places where life-long members of the community can continue to feel at home. “And we want you to feel at home in Avon,” said Mayor Jensen to all in attendance from St. Mary of the Woods and Atrium Living Centers. “Welcome.”
St. Mary of the Woods staff members are proud that their community serves as their residents’ home and a gathering place for family and friends.
That is one of the reasons why St. Mary of the Woods has been awarded the US News and World Report 2015 Best Nursing Home designation. St. Mary of the Woods is a distinctive faith-oriented community offering 81 independent living apartments, 47 assisted living apartments, and a 30-bed skilled nursing and rehabilitation community. The residence features gorgeous architecture, spacious residences, unparalleled hospitality, and a beautiful chapel offering daily services.
