Healthcare Center Expansion
Colfax, North Carolina
Project Owner: River Landing at Sandy Ridge
Designer: CJMW Architecture
River Landing at Sandy Ridge is the newest and largest of three continuing care retirement communities operated by The Presbyterian Homes, Inc. With a well regarded golf course in the community and a focus on "Person-Centered Care" in its Healthcare Center, River Landing seeks to provide a place where seniors of all ability levels can enjoy an exceptional way of life. River Landing is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and holds a five-star rating by Medicare.
After completing an apartment building for independent-living residents in late 2007, Blum Construction was chosen to build the 15,000-square-foot, 16-bed skilled nursing unit addition to the Healthcare Center. Construction and phasing were carefully planned with the safety and welfare of community residents, Healthcare Center patients, and children enrolled in the on-site daycare facility in mind. Coordination with the Division of Health Service Regulation (DHSR) required Blum Construction’s usual efficient documentation and organization of all required material.
