Menno Haven awarded for rehab center

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — Menno Haven recently announced that its new rehabilitation center won an “Environments for Aging Design Showcase Award.”

Each year, Environments for Aging, a national trade publication in the senior living industry, judges entries from architects, developers, designers and operators from across the globe. This year, there were 54 submissions, including Menno Haven’s rehabilitation center, which is still under construction. Menno Haven was one of just six submissions selected for the award.

The building was designed with the intention of it receiving the WELL Building Certification upon completion. To be WELL Certified means that a building, and everything in it, is created to provide comfort, drive better choices and generally enhance overall health and wellness of those living and working in it.

The rehabilitation center project is part of Project Genesis, Menno Haven’s five-year strategic plan that will include the investment of more than $100 million in its communities in Chambersburg.

Project Genesis will include the rehabilitation center, replacing the original 1964 nursing home, the addition of a 35,000-square-foot Resident Life Center, the addition of Memory Care Houses, and new independent living cottages. Menno Haven expects to break ground on the balance of those projects later this year and 2019.
