Assisted Living with Memory Care: Progress
Building a better, more dignified care environment for our community’s most fragile residents and those currently living in Long Term Care.
“Folks, we have drywall!”: Construction Progress Update – November 13, 2018
Take a look at the gallery for updated photos from today’s walk-through. Sheet rock is up in the lower east neighborhood, giving more feelings of defined, almost finished, space. Electrical contractors are hard at work and everyone is working to catch up the additional 4th neighborhood (recently approved by PHD#1 hospital commissioners, bringing us to 72 units!). The roof is complete, and crews are even preparing part of the grounds for sidewalks. Stay tuned as this project is really going to move quickly, but you won’t be able to see it from the street. Again, we couldn’t undertake this massive community project without our District #1 voters, our local partners, suppliers, design team, and our amazing contractor team – Kilgore Construction. As a side note, we are thrilled that Kilgore Construction is so supportive of our community programs; they sponsored our golf tournament this spring and now the upcoming Festival of Trees.

Media Release 10/25/2018 – PHD1 Commissioners Approve Project Expansion
On Thursday, Pend Oreille County Public Hospital District #1 commissioners approved the $1.1 million bid to complete the final “neighborhood” in the advanced-care assisted living facility project. Hospital District commissioners present at the Thursday meeting unanimously approved the completed expansion plans that would increase final capacity to 72 beds. Projected community need, along with anticipated future building code changes, precipitated the need for a decision on the expansion and additional contracting bid.
Initially, building plans included a “rough-in” of the fourth neighborhood with the option to finish it at a later date, leaving completed units at 54 beds. Commissioners were outwardly pleased with the decision to expand, which means the District will be able to accommodate more residents in need of care. Kilgore Construction, Inc., the project contractor, received the winning bid for this final neighborhood completion project.
