Wheat Ridge, CO –Pinkard Construction, owner American Baptist Homes of the Midwest, and William Brummett Architects celebrated the grand opening of Mountain Vista’s new Rehabilitation Care Center on Wednesday, July 23.  This six month long renovation overhauled an entire wing of skilled nursing area to create 14 rehab suites specifically designed for short term rehabilitation care.

The new short term therapy suites are crucial to Mountain Vista’s continuum of care, enabling residents to receive rehabilitative therapy, support and training as they transition back to assisted living, independent living or their previous home, following an injury or illness. Each rehab suite has been completely remodeled and appointed with home-like furnishings to meet the needs and expectations of residents as they recover and often relearn daily living skills.

Project scope included the addition of private showers to all suites, bringing in more daylighting via skylights, adding a new dining area and common areas for a comfortable home-like feel. In addition Mountain Vista has created a new therapy gym, resident services center and beauty parlor all with new finishes and furnishings.

This project is phase one of a two phase project. Work has already begun on the second phase, which will add a new assisted living memory care wing to Mountain Vista’s community.
