Nauset Construction Corporation sheared three months off the scheduled completion date for a 72,000-square-foot healthcare facility in Danvers, Massachusetts, for College Street Partners, an advisory and development firm specializing exclusively in healthcare real estate.
The $20 million project, which will be known as the Hathorne Hill Rehabilitation Center, began initial site work in August, with an original completion date scheduled for the end of December 2012. That date has since been moved tentatively to November, with Nauset officials predicting the potential for an even earlier completion.
Nauset reports that the finished interior is about one-third of the way through, with mechanicals about 70% complete, framing about 90% done, and the exterior of the building nearly ready for siding.
The center is being built on a 9-acre site across from Beverly Hospital at Danvers, approximately two miles from Cedar Glen Care and Rehabilitation Center. The Cedar Glen facility is owned and operated by SunBridge Healthcare and will transfer its operations to the new Hathorne Hill Rehabilitation Center upon completion.
The project will create a state-of-the-art skilled nursing center that will serve up to 120 patients and residents.
The building will feature a personalized model of care developed by JSA and tenant SunBridge that embraces a shift in the way rehabilitation healthcare is delivered. The center will feature three distinct “neighborhoods” that will accommodate up to 40 patients each. The neighborhood settings showcase home-like amenities such as fireplaces, with access to outdoor spaces and attractive courtyard settings.
The facility will also replace the clinical feel of the existing model of healthcare rehabilitation services with a "household" concept designed to help patients recover quickly from orthopedic or reconstructive surgery, trauma, or a neurological condition. Hathorne Hill Rehabilitation Center will also offer limited long-term residential senior care.
