Cascadia Healthcare LLC, a Boise based skilled nursing operator and development company, announced today that it will break ground on two new Transitional Care Facility developments beginning in the summer of 2016.
Cascadia's projects will be state-of-the-art, 99-bed Transitional Rehab and skilled long-term care focused facilities. Each of the Facilities will be comprised of three distinct buildings consisting of nearly 52,000 total square feet. One side will have up to 30 private rooms with private baths and showers. The facilities will provide residents with cutting edge rehab gyms. Included in the design will be separate occupational therapy areas uniquely designed to simulate a homelike environment. These gyms will ensure residents are ready to safely transition back to their prior living arrangements. Another wing will boast 30 semi-private rooms with private showers and open and inviting living spaces where residents can thrive in a community setting. First class activities and dining spaces will allow the residents the maximum quality of life experience, while providing all necessary care. At the heart of these developments will be a state of the art service building delivering restaurant style food, hospitality style cleaning services and accommodations and nearly 5,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor open and innovative therapy space.
Cascadia's principals have a wealth of experience in the industry, with a mission to "Be a Force for Good" in delivering quality outcomes in community based settings. "We see an industry that is currently operating in severely outdated 50 to 60-year-old frameworks. Most new construction is focused on the "skilled only" rehab market. This reality leaves the long term care population underserved within the new space. Our intent is to focus on both long term care and transitional, caring for each segment with dignity and individualized services while raising the bar for care within our local communities," President & CEO Owen Hammond said in describing Cascadia's driving focus.
In addition to the slated developments, Cascadia is actively looking at opportunities to develop and operate, within Idaho and throughout the western states. Hammond noted that, "The team at Cascadia is looking to utilize the unique combination of our experience, and strength as operators and developers to transform industry norms. We can't think of a better place to start than our home state of Idaho."
"Our two developments will bring nearly 250 skilled jobs to the Treasure Valley over the next few years, not to mention the jobs that will be created during the construction phase of these facilities," said Owen Hammond in regards to the impact of this announcement on job creation in the valley.
