Opening of the Special Care Suites
LindenGrove Communities Officially Opens Rehabilitation Center in Waukesha
LindenGrove Communities held a ribbon cutting and grand opening at its Waukesha campus yesterday to celebrate the opening of its 22 new rehabilitation center private suites.
More than 200 people attended the celebration, which began with a ribbon cutting ceremony to officially open the new center.
LindenGrove Communities President and CEO Linda Joel and LindenGrove Communities Chairman of the Board Randy Severson cut the ribbon to officially open the center. They were joined by Waukesha Campus Administrator Katie Quintanilla, Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow, Waukesha Business Alliance President and CEO Suzanne Kelley. Chaplain Dennis Kubena, a former rehabilitation patient at the Waukesha campus, blessed the center prior to the ribbon cutting.
Following the ceremony, guests had an opportunity to tour the center, sample hors ‘d'oeuvres, listen to harp music and enter for a chance to win great prizes.
The $1.4 million project includes converting all of its rooms in the rehabilitation center to luxurious, private special care suites with full bathrooms and walk-in showers. The nearly 10,000-square foot renovation project also includes the construction of a private bistro with fireside lounge and beautiful patio space exclusively reserved for patients staying at LindenGrove Communities for rehabilitation services.
“LindenGrove Communities prides itself on identifying new opportunities to serve the community in meaningful ways,” said Linda Joel, LindenGrove Communities President and CEO. “We recognized residents in the Waukesha area could greatly benefit from a rehabilitation center that offers a private, tranquil atmosphere. Our special care suites will create a healing experience for patients as they prepare themselves to return to their homes.”
Architectural planning and design and interior design services for the project were provided by Plunkett Raysich Architects,LLP. Waukesha-based Stier Construction managed and built the rehabilitation center on time and on budget.
