Rosalia Gardens Project Moving Ahead
Carpenters were scurrying among the thousands of 2x4s in the framing of the addition at Rosalia Gardens, the Aspirus Langlade Hospital facility on Flight Road on Antigo’s northeast side.
One of the men said they were hoping to get most of the sprawling, $4.2 million structure enclosed before temperatures have a true winter bite.
The trusses are coming Monday, one of the men working on the project offered, which will be a big step in the plan to close it in.
The 19,022 square-foot project will produce 25 additional private rooms, dedicated hospice rooms, expansion of the adult day care site as well as private and communal dining locations.
At the recent groundbreaking ceremony, Dave Schneider, the Langlade Hospital administrator, explained it is an exciting project…a great project, for the hospital and community.
The design of the facility supports a social household model that promotes dignity, independence and respect, Schneider said. Additionally, the plan includes separate living room and den areas, a country kitchen and a spa that includes a hair salon. The building will be monitored and secured with a state of the art nurse call and way finding management system.
The existing Rosalia Gardens space that includes 18 residences will be transitioned to Memory Care.
Construction of the new facility is scheduled for completion in October, 2017.
