Saginaw based Samaritas Senior Living managed to complete a three year multi-phase renovation costing about $7,500,000 while keeping operations going.
Administrator Jodi Reymore says all accommodations are now private with over 90 beds to handle long term and memory care plus rehabilitation patients. Changes include a new state of the art therapy gym and landscaping. Steps taken during construction included building temporary walls to separate occupied spaces.
Samaritas which has locations across Michigan recently took over the State Street site which had operated as Luther Manor for about 50 years. There are approximately 100 employees for the facility which has a current patient count in the 60’s.
