Unity Announces $5.8 Million Renovation Project at Edna Tina Wilson Living Center
Unity Health System announced today that it has received approval to renovate Edna Tina Wilson Living Center, its 120-bed skilled nursing facility located on Island Cottage Road in Greece.
The $5.8 million project will include renovating approximately, 29,000 square feet of interior common space to foster an atmosphere of culture change that many long-term care facilities are moving toward.
“Edna Tina was built 20 years ago as a state-of-the-art facility with a unique design concept that was unlike any other community in the area. Over the last 20 years, we’ve established ourselves as a well respected leader in the long-term care community and we’re very proud of what we’ve built here inside these walls,” said Amanda Teugeman, Administrator at Edna Tina Wilson Living Center. “We look forward to embarking on this next journey with our renovation project that will prepare us for the next 20 years of caring.”
Once the project is complete, the kitchen and dining area will be the main focus of the community, creating a more home-like atmosphere that will allow for elders/residents to take part in meal preparation and planning.
Renovations also include adding more private space for elders and their families, as well as provide additional open space that is currently divided by glass panes and doors. In addition, all acoustic and light features will be updated to be more sensitive to those with dementia. Construction is expected to begin January 6, 2014 and be complete by April 2015.
