TRISUN Healthcare and Suntex Development LLC recently announced plans for a new skilled nursing and rehabilitation center, TRISUN Care Center Lakeside, located in San Antonio, Tex.
Groundbreaking for the nearly 42,000-square-foot senior community was on Tuesday, and the facility is expected to open next summer. The facility will offer 120 skilled nursing and rehab beds, and upon completion, it will employ approximately 115 full- and part-time staff.
Once the community has opened, it will be owned by Suntex Development and managed by TRISUN Healthcare, a subsidiary of Harden Healthcare that currently manages three other senior care facilities in the San Antonio area.
“We are excited about TRISUN Care Center Lakeside, which will expand our services offered in the San Antonio area,” said Lew Little, chief executive officer of Harden Healthcare.
The care center’s services will include 24-hour skilled nursing care and short- and long-term rehabilitation, and a rehab gym will be located on the grounds. Additionally, a wing of the facility will be dedicated to rapid recovery suites, which will help rehab patients transition back to their homes quicker.
“There is a need in the senior housing sector, and Suntex Development is thrilled to partner with TRISUN Healthcare, a leader in senior care, on this project,” said Andy Chafoulias, president of Suntex Development. “This is an opportunity for the Suntex family to become a leader in this sector through our development capabilities and strong investment resources.”
