Grace Village Cuts Ribbon On New Resident Care Center In Winona Lake
Kosciusko County nonprofit Grace Village Retirement Community recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for its new Resident Care Center.
The Resident Care Center will serve as a central hub from which nursing staff, physicians and therapists can serve the needs of patients in the skilled nursing facility, according to a news release. The Resident Care Center is a completely new design from the previous nurses’ station, making it easier for staff and residents to have visual contact and opening up the hallway space for safer movement within the facility.
“Our No. 1 priority in designing the new Resident Care Center has been patient safety,” said Tammy Smith, Grace Village’s director of advancement. “The new open-concept layout has lower countertops to make it easier for staff to see patients and respond immediately to their needs. The new footprint also provides wider hallways, improving traffic flow and reducing the risk of falls. Upgrading from the former nurses’ station to the Resident Care Center is part of an overall remodeling of the health care facility, providing a comfortable, home-like setting for our residents who require the highest level of care.”
