The facility held a groundbreaking event on Wednesday, August 29, 2012 at 10:00 am. With construction to begin mid-September and scheduled to be complete in the spring of 2013, the addition will house 14 private suites and a therapy gym that will be 5 times the size of the existing gym. In total, Three Rivers will offer 36 private and 44 semi-private suites, with private baths, 2,500 square feet of rehabilitation space with state of the art equipment to assist patients with their recovery from surgery, illness, or injury.
Patients and their family often look for a facility that offers home-like amenities that make their stay feel less “sterile.” Three Rivers offers patients an environment that is their home away from home; with the addition, patients will be able to enjoy several indoor and outdoor gathering areas and spacious patient rooms. The rehabilitation garden will allow a patient to “train” their body to walk on different terrain and provides a place of quiet reflection on their successes following their therapy session. “The kind of services provided within a skilled nursing facility has evolved to encompass short term rehabilitation. We are thrilled to begin construction and to provide a rehab environment that is soothing and supports a safe discharge home.” Said Kim Kilday, Senior Director for Sales and Marketing with Liberty Healthcare and Rehabilitation Services.
