Dorothy Ryan says she's happy to be one of the 200 residents at Meadowbrook Healthcare nursing and rehab facility.
"It's a very good place to live," she said. "If you gotta be in a place like this, this is a good one."
Meadowbrook Healthcare may soon get a facelift, expanding its 200 beds to 280 and increasing the number of parking spots. Ryan says that Meadowbrook is always evolving to suit residents' needs.
"If there's anything that's not right, they fix it. They're very good about that," Ryan said.
Meadowbrook officials say Clinton County does not currently have enough beds for nursing home patients. The expansion will allow the nursing home to take patients now housed at CVPH. The hospital will help Meadowbrook by donating 54 of the 80 new beds. And the nursing home patients will benefit by getting the specialized care they need.
"Make sure they're doing what they're supposed to be doing to live individually and live a fulfilled life here," said Laurie Marvin of Meadowbrook Healthcare.
According to the staff at Meadowbrook, the project is expected to cost around $15 million. They hope to start the expansion by 2015.
"This expansion will certainly help us reach out to more people in Clinton County," Marvin said.
By expanding their building, Meadowbrook will be expanding care for the entire county.
Funding for Meadowbrook's expansion will come from the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Renewal.
