St. Luke Lutheran Community Plans Major Addition to St. Luke - North Canton Campus St. Luke Lutheran Community is building a major addition on the North Canton campus with an estimated construction cost of 7.7 million dollars. The 41,000 square foot addition will house a state-of-the-art, short term rehabilitation center and a specialized Alzheimer’s care assisted living facility.
Dr. John L. Spieler, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated that the project is critically important to the mission of St. Luke and represents our commitment to the region and older adults. The project is modeled after the nationally acclaimed neighborhood concept, which has significantly changed the perception of nursing homes for residents, staff, and families from one of an institution to a more home-like environment. The first floor of the addition will be a rehabilitation center for patients requiring short term nursing and comprehensive rehabilitation care. The rehabilitation center will include 24 private rooms with lounges and private dining. The 19-unit, Alzheimer’s care assisted living facility will have a separate entrance and will be specially designed and staffed considering the special needs of residents with Alzheimer’s.
The new addition is designed to provide care in a setting which supports the concept of person-centered care. According to Evelyn Moore, Executive Director, “The project will allow St. Luke to provide the type of environment and amenities that meet the expectations of current consumers. In today’s world, individuals expect private rooms and facilities that feel more like their home.”
At this time, St. Luke is in the process of finalizing the architectural plans, securing financing, and obtaining the necessary approvals from the City of North Canton. Funding for the project will be through PNC Bank and a tax-exempt bond issue. Construction is scheduled to begin in September 2014. The project will be completed within 14 months.
