Avon, Ind. -- Ground has been broken and site preparation is underway for construction of Wellbrooke of Avon, a 66,350 center for health and wellness at 10307 E. County Road 100 North in Avon, directly across from Indiana University Health Hospital, west campus. The $14.4M development is a joint project of LCS and Mainstreet and will bring up to 100 full-time jobs and up to 300 construction jobs to the area.
"Avon is thrilled to have Mainstreet making this significant investment in our community,¨ said Mike Rogers, Avon Town Council President. "As a community, we are working to become known as an educational and workforce development corridor. We believe having schools such as Ivy Tech College and Trine University is an example of how we continue to strengthen our community to attract and retain companies such as Mainstreet. The 100-plus skilled jobs that will be created in this state-of-the-art center for health and wellness will be a welcomed addition to the area.¨
Wellbrooke of Avon is expected to open in July 2013. It rounds out a portfolio of three similar centers under construction in Crawfordsville, Wabash and Westfield, Indiana.
The family of Wellbrooke communities introduces an innovative approach to the design and delivery of health services for a new generation offering all-private service-rich residential apartments, and private suites for top-of-the-line rehabilitative or long-term care.
Beyond the unity of such in-demand health services at a single campus are the uncharacteristically high aesthetic and hospitality standards Wellbrooke has set to meet the preferences of a new generation of customers. Its freestanding centers are considered, above all, living spaces where people can receive quality health care while being in a place they can enjoy.
Mainstreet's Chairman and CEO Zeke Turner described guests experiencing concierge-based health services in a hotel-like atmosphere. "The design will feature multiple social destinations, including several different dining venues and private and public areas with fireplaces," Turner stated. "An emphasis on social features encourages interaction with family and friends, making Wellbrooke of Avon a destination for the entire community."
Mainstreet and LCS will work with other community resources to identify collaboration opportunities with the center and local partners.
Guiding the concierge-style delivery of service at Wellbrooke of Avon will be Life Care Services, An LCS Company and its proprietary customer service initiative ˇV LifeSTYLE Promise, which focuses on resident preferences and quality care by creating a culture of exceptional hospitality.
"With 70 all-private accommodations for physical, occupational and speech rehabilitative and long-term care, as well as 30 service-rich apartments for full-time residential living, LifeSTYLE Promise will help us create the kind of hospitality-focused and socially engaging environment todayˇ¦s customers desire. Furthermore, its principles enhance a culture whereby all staff can consistently contribute to a rare level of individualized hospitality assuring choice, control and flexibility,¨ said Jonathan Cook, Director of Operations Management for Life Care Services.
