Nursing home opening in Spotsy
BY JIM HALL
Greenfield Senior Living has purchased the vacant MicAnd Assisted Living building in Spotsylvania County and plans to reopen as a senior care facility.
Greenfield, based in Falls Church, owns 12 senior communities in Virginia, Pennsylvania and Tennessee. It has two assisted living facilities in the Fredericksburg area, both in Stafford County.
The newest Greenfield will have 66 beds in 48 rooms and is scheduled to open in late January, said Kevin Bonello, communications director.
Thirty-four beds will be in a locked unit for Alzheimer’s and dementia patients. Thirty-two beds will be for assisted-living residents. All of the beds will be for private-pay residents, rather than those who receive funding from the federal/state Medicaid program.
“We’re really excited about the property and the project,” Bonello said.
Greenfield purchased the MicAnd property from Dr. Abdul Durrani earlier this month. The 3.7-acre parcel sold for $2.75 million.
The company plans to spend about $1 million to renovate the interior and exterior and reopen as Greenfield of Spotsylvania. The building is at 9300 Onyx Court.
“It’s going to look completely different,” Bonello said.
Greenfield Senior Living recently celebrated its 10th anniversary. Its first property was Greenfield of Fredericksburg, an assisted living facility off White Oak Road in southern Stafford.
“We’re very comfortable with the need and the growth of the [Fredericksburg] area,” Bonello said.
MicAnd Assisted Living closed Aug. 10 after four years of operation. The owners moved its 57 elderly residents to other long-term care centers.
