McKENZIE (August 22) — Christian Care Center marked the completion of the first of three phases of renovations Thursday with an open house and ribbon-cutting.
Administrators, staff, residents and their family members were joined by other business and community leaders, including Carroll County Mayor Joseph Butler and Carroll County Chamber of Commerce President Brad Hurley, for the event.
According to Executive Director Wendy Melton, Phase I consisted of renovation of all resident rooms, including all new furnishings, televisions and electric beds; new spas on each hall; renovation of nursing stations; new lighting; and new dining furniture.
Guests were invited to check out the improvements. Refreshments were served, and live music was played in the dining area by local musicians Carl Byars and Steve Bomar. Door prizes were given, donated by CCC’s health care partners and other McKenzie businesses. Bingo was played to wrap up the event.
Phase II will include renovation of the current entrance area to include a chapel, expanded dining area and fireplace.
Phase III will add a new building facing Highway 79, which will serve as the new entrance; a beauty shop; a therapy gym; and outpatient therapy services.
Sandy Deakins, Vice President of Client Operations Consulting Services for Care Centers Management Consulting (parent company of CCC), noted to The Banner that Christian Care Center is among just six percent of nursing homes to be accredited by The Joint Commission, an independent, not-for-profit organization that accredits and certifies nearly 21,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States.
In an interview with The Banner, Melton said, “Our goal is to be prominent in our city and important to our city. We’re very blessed to be here. Very blessed. We have a wonderful team... We provide excellent therapy. We provide excellent nursing care. We are a cut above.”
