The Rosary Care Center successfully expands its assisted living facility

The challenge

The Rosary Care Center was constructed in 1975 as a residence hall for senior Sisters of St. Francis on the campus of Lourdes University in Sylvania, Ohio. Today, it is a 76-bed licensed skilled nursing facility that offers skilled nursing care and rehabilitation services.

The Sisters of St. Francis worked with Plante Moran Living Forward™ (PMLF) to plan for the future needs of their aging community.

The Our Lady of Grace Hall project involved the construction of a 17-bed assisted living facility to meet skilled nursing codes for possible conversion in the future. There were unique requirements as part of the project, including matching the architecture of the Rosary Care Center, which had a distinct clay tile roof and limited room for the addition.

The solution

PMLF provided support for the sisters as they changed design and construction vendors after the economic challenges following the 2008 recession impacted their estimates and budgets. Our team did this while still allowing for the design continuity necessary to maintain the integrity of the Rosary Care Center’s distinct architecture.

The benefit

Through PMLF’s leadership, the project remained on budget and the 100,000-square-foot addition was a success.
