The event unveiled the facility’s state-of-the-art renovations under the Green House Project and offered tours of its spaces designed to provide exceptional comfort and support to seniors within a cottage-like environment.
“The incredible leaders at this facility have not only created a state-of-the-art long term care facility but also crafted a nurturing home where residents can live lives filled with purpose, joy, and fulfillment,” said Bentonville Mayor Stephanie Orman. “As we unveil these remarkable renovations, we also celebrate the power of empathy and quality care for our aging population.”
Mayor Orman was joined by several community leaders including Ashley Wardlow (president and interim CEO of Bentonville Chamber of Commerce), Becky Seba (Ward 1 Position 1 Bentonville City Council Member), Dr. Bilal Naeem (medical director), Dr. Gary McHenry (executive director of the UAMS Schmieding Center for Senior Health and Education), Lance Taylor (executive director of the Schmieding Foundation), Dr. Brad Bibb, (Access Medical Clinic), representatives from Circle of Life Hospice, representatives from PACE of the Ozarks, members of the Bentonville City Council, as well as residents and family members.
“Today, we witnessed the fulfillment of a profound commitment to quality care for our long term care residents,” remarked Rachel Bunch, executive director of the Arkansas Health Care Association, during the event. “This facility and its leadership team represent the kind of innovative, meaningful care residents can expect at member facilities across the state.”
The renovation includes 6 cottages with 72 total beds in a neighborhood design. Each cottage was named in honor of a local health care worker or dedicated volunteer; many of their families attended the event.
