TAVARES, FL (July 13, 2018) – Batson-Cook Company is pleased to announce the completion and grand opening of Fountain Inn Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, a new $22-million, 120-bed healthcare facility situated by the banks of Lake Etowah on the campus of Florida Hospital Waterman.
The new 85,000-square-foot facility, owned and operated by Adventist Care Centers of Orlando, is a two-story building with 60 private rooms on each level and high-end finishes and furnishings throughout.
“It has been a pleasure for us to build this beautifully-appointed nursing home with its resort feel, welcoming atmosphere, and lake views,” said Chris Shepherd, project executive with Batson-Cook. “It will enhance the long-term care experience of residents, their families, and guests, and that is very rewarding for us.”
Occupational and physical therapy services will be provided on the first floor, which includes a therapy gym with a therapy tub and a mock residence for patients to prepare for their return to independent living. There is also a bistro-style dining area for residents and guests, a community area with a fireplace, a commercial kitchen, and a hair salon. The second floor is dedicated to skilled nursing care services.
Surface parking for 130 vehicles was also included in the project. The facility will employ about 150 people.
Architect for Fountain Inn was Lantz-Boggio Architects of Englewood, CO.
