COLD SPRING, Ky. (Feb. 19, 2013) — Gov. Steve Beshear and officials at Carespring Health Care Management broke ground Monday on a transitional care facility in Cold Spring that will create 200 jobs.
The $24 million facility, scheduled to open in the fall of 2014, will specialize in short-term rehabilitation and long-term nursing care. Called Coldspring Transitional Care Center, it is located off of the AA Highway and U.S. 27.
The development has been planned since 2008, but the recession caused a delay in construction. Carespring acquired the beds for the Campbell County facility when the Lakeside Nursing Home closed in 2006.
“We are excited to bring these beds back into service for Campbell County at our new Coldspring facility,” said Barry Bortz, CEO of Carespring Health Care Management.
The building also will house activity, dining and exercise facilities, as well as a Starbucks Coffee Shop that is standard with all of Carespring’s healthcare facilities.
The Coldspring Transitional Care Facility will house at least 143 residents in a brand new, state-of-the-art complex.
Carespring is an independent, locally run assisted and independent living organization with 10 facilities throughout the southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky.
