On May 1, 2012, Lee County Nursing and Rehabilitation held a groundbreaking to celebrate the beginning construction of a new facility, Westfield Rehabilitation and Health Center, in Sanford, NC. The groundbreaking symbolized a promise. Now the staff is witnessing the beginning of a new reality.
The building site is scattered with earth moving equipment, bulldozers, dump trucks, the foreman’s trailer, perimeter fencing, and many construction professionals working hard to deliver on that promise.
Each day, employees, family members, and visitors at Lee County Nursing and Rehab can be heard commenting throughout the day about the latest developments on our property.
“I saw a backhoe digging a big hole today”.
“They’ve cut down some big trees at the back of the lot”.
“I drove past the new building this morning”.
“The lot looks bigger than I expected”.
“This is really happening!”
And everyone is smiling.
The warmth of those smiles can be felt for miles as they look forward to moving in to Westfield Rehabilitation and Health Center.
