Renovations to the Good Samaritan Home in Quincy are almost complete.
The 20 million dollar Campus Repositioning Project included a remodel of the old Alzheimer's Unit for a new Medicare Rehab Center. Staff finished the remodel, but now must wait about 45 days for the state to certify it for occupancy. Before that takes place, Good Samaritan plans to finish the last phase of the remodeling, the shelter care area, near the chapel. That will include new flooring, paint, and energy efficient windows.
The project as a whole will allow for more private rooms within the nursing care unit.
"All you have to do is look at it and it's comfortable, it's nice looking, it's warm and inviting. I think the residents here are excited about the changes that have taken place," Michael Duffy, administrator and CEO said.
Good Samaritan Home is also in the midst of another project you can see from Harrison Street.
Construction on new cottages will bump the number of homes from 160 to 200. Some cottages will be complete in November, while others will open in the spring. Duffy says the prepaid rent for these cottages will provide the capital for their construction.
