Pence helped break ground Tuesday on the expansion of the nursing and rehabilitation facility at Mennonite Village in Albany, Oregon.
“Pence is very thankful for the opportunity to serve Mennonite Village,” said Dave Hays, Pence Principal. “We are excited to be a part of this project that is an expression of their continued care for their residents.”
Established in 1947, the village has grown substantially with several additions and remodels to the 275 acre community. The staff and board is committed to ensuring a quality, comfortable lifestyle for residents.
President and CEO Ron Litwiller commented that the desire to create a home atmosphere in this 50,000 square foot addition has been years in the making. “We took [LRS Architects] to Kansas with us to visit a site there and came back with ideas,” Ron said.
Mennonite Village Board Chair Nancy Friesen made the closing remarks at the event noting, “the building will change, but the quality of care will go on.”
Crews begin work on the site at the beginning of May.
