Project Strategy

Granger Group’s team hit the ground running, installing the footings and foundations prior to the Certificate of Need (CON) deadline and provided turnkey delivery of the facility, thus guaranteeing on-time and on-budget completion.  The team guided the facility through the USDA financing process, enabling the project to obtain permanent financing.

The development of this new LTC will reduce transportation costs for the hospital and lower patient risks in emergency situations.  A direct hospital connection will provide other sought after savings and efficiencies for the hospital as well.  The direct connection will deliver greater reimbursements from the state for an attached facility, produce increased administrative efficiencies, and provide greater operational savings through the consolidation of services, such as patient services, laundry, maintenance and housekeeping.  The building will feature all single-bed units, in four separately themed wings, a center hall with a dining room, activity center, beauty shop and exercise room.  The project is scheduled for completion in late April 2011.

In addition to the work being performed on the long-term care facility, Granger Group has already completed the development of the hospital’s MRI and will complete the  building’s connector in May.  The culmination of these efforts has allowed the hospital’s healthcare team to focus on its core mission—providing extraordinary healthcare to this rural market.
