Lafayette, Ind. -- Hoosiers looking for resident-centered, state-of-the-art health care have a new option in Lafayette. Mainstreet and Trilogy Health Services are celebrating their latest Next Generation joint venture, The Springs at Lafayette.
Located at 2402 South Street on the former Home Hospital site, The Springs at Lafayette provides transitional care (short-stay rehabilitation and therapy) and assisted living in a service-rich environment. The property hosted a VIP ribbon cutting this evening.
Construction started on The Springs at Lafayette in April 2014 and the property is tentatively scheduled to open by the first week of February. Mainstreet developed and owns The Springs at Lafayette and Trilogy operates it.
According to Randall Bufford, president and CEO of Trilogy, "Our commitment to a servant leadership culture and our dedication to providing exceptional customer service that exceeds our customers' expectations are the cornerstones of Trilogy's operating philosophy. When you combine great services with a team of dedicated and compassionate caregivers in the Mainstreet Next Generation model, the result is an outstanding senior living experience."
"From staff engagement and our Resident 1st philosophy, to the local flavors on our menus, and even the names given to our different residential hallways - everything at a Trilogy campus is focused on our customers' preferences and helping them have strong social connections, engagement and purpose, while also providing options for all levels of health care," Bufford continued.
With 100 beds and 66,786 square feet, The Springs at Lafayette boasts hospitality-oriented care with amenities such as a therapy gym, an outdoor rehabilitation courtyard, a movie theatre, a game room, a spa, an on-site chef and more. The project, which represents a total investment of $14 million in the community, created more than 350 construction jobs and 120 part-time and full-time jobs.
"Our Next Generation properties are designed to give aging Americans want they want today – more services, amenities and attention," said Zeke Turner, founder and CEO of Mainstreet. "It's only fitting that The Springs at Lafayette would illustrate the coming wave of health care on a site so steeped in history. This has been a true community-based project."
The Springs at Lafayette will host a community open house for visitors this Sunday, Jan. 18, from 1 – 3 p.m.
"We are thrilled to be serving residents of Lafayette and Tippecanoe County," said Margie Crooks, executive director of The Springs at Lafayette. "We look forward to bringing our exceptional approach to resident care and services to area seniors. We invite members of the community to attend our community open house to take tours of our campus, meet our team of caregivers, and learn more about the special incentives and discounts offered through our Founder's Club."
