Rose Senior Living officially broke ground October 14 on a new state-of-the-art senior living community on the Providence-Providence Park Hospital campus in Novi, Mich.
The groundbreaking ceremony was held at the construction site on the Providence-Providence Park Hospital campus. The program featured Warren Rose, President and CEO, Rose Senior Living; City of Novi Mayor Bob Gatts; and Peter Karadjoff, President of Providence-Providence Park Hospital, Novi.
The 190,000-square-foot community, which will be managed by Ecumen, is now under construction at the northwest corner of Beck Road and 11 Mile Road in Novi, will offer 182 units — 69 independent living units, 75 assisted living, and 38 memory care. The community is expected to open during the summer of 2017. Rose Senior Living has a strategic partnership with Ecumen, which currently operates Rose Senior Living communities in Memphis, Tenn., and Clinton Township, Mich.
The Providence Park community will offer increased levels of personalized service as residents age-in-place, including a 24-hour care staff. The building’s amenities will include multiple dining venues, a café, theater, activity areas, a salon and extensive landscaped courtyards that offer a variety of outdoor activities.
The design and development of the senior living community has been a collaborative effort between Rose Senior Living, St. John Providence and the City of Novi. It will provide a comprehensive continuum of care for local seniors as well as a number of health care jobs. The community will provide about 80 full-time and 20 part-time positions when it opens, as well as 150 jobs during construction.
“Our strategy for the senior housing market is based on building vibrant lifestyle communities with easy access to high-quality commerce, recreation, entertainment and especially health care,” said Warren Rose, CEO of Edward Rose & Sons. “Seniors increasingly are living longer, healthier and more active lives, and our communities are being built with that in mind. We’re emphasizing convenience, walkability and options to age in place.”
Peter Karadjoff, president of Providence-Providence Park Hospital, Novi added, “We’re proud to have Rose build their exceptional senior living facility on our hospital campus. Their addition strengthens our overall goals of providing accessible quality healthcare right here in our community.”
