North Platte, Neb. KNOP-TV —

Construction at Linden Court is moving right along.

Officials say the project will help meet the demands in the healthcarecommunity.

“We see a lot more knee replacements, hip replacements, even some ankle and shoulder surgeries that come to us after their surgery. But we are seeing more need for more space to serve this type of client,” said Linden Court.

The investors, Vetter Senior Living, will contribute $5.5 million for expansion of the nursing home.

Two million dollars will go towards renovations.

“Senior needs are changing and we have more family involvement than we have had in the past. We see a need to do more activities with them.”

The project will not only free up space for community and family gatherings, but it will also include 32 new rooms for in house rehab services.

“More people come to us who just need to be here for a short amount of time to gain strength so that they can go back home and live independently. It can be as short of a time as two weeks to maybe a couple of months. We will also have a larger therapy room close to those households for them to utilize with state-of-the-art equipment,” said Linden Court.

The project is expected to be complete by next summer.

Staff hope to move their patients in before that time.

According to the latest census there are over 3,800 people over the age of 65 living in North Platte.

That is why the North Platte city council has approved the proposed Linden Court nursing home expansion and renovations. The owner of the nursing facility, Vetter Senior Living, has plans to spend $7.5 million on the expansion.

Vetter’s investment into the home will increase the property’s size by 25,000 square feet.

Even though the construction will add only 12 more beds, chief development officer for Vetter, Mitch Elliott, said the changes will revolutionize the rehab facilities.

“We’re going to be able to dedicate and create households and neighborhoods inside of our existing facilities. That will be solely dedicated to short term rehab,” said Elliott.

The architect plan on having all of the blueprints done by May and hope to break ground by the summer.
