Healthcare Company, Mainstreet, To Open $13.8 Million Facility In Kokomo
Kokomo Mayor Greg Goodnight announced plans for a $13.8 million health and rehabilitation community to be built on the City’s west side by Cicero-based Mainstreet Property Group.
“Mainstreet’s investment in Kokomo will provide immediate construction employment opportunities and permanent jobs for health care workers,” said Mayor Goodnight. “This new facility will transform rehabilitation care by meeting the wellness and social needs of today’s assisted living residents.”
Construction plans call for a new 67,000 square feet facility that will provide short and long-term health care to patients. Patients will experience concierge-based health care in a hotel-like atmosphere. Mainstreet’s Next Generation design includes multiple social destinations, restaurant-style dining, spacious private rooms and baths, in addition to therapy/wellness areas.
“There is a significant need in this area for senior care facilities that meet the high standards and expectations of today’s seniors,” said Mainstreet’s CEO Zeke Turner. “We selected Kokomo because of its positive business environment and skilled workforce.”
The company anticipates employing over 300 jobs during construction, with more than 100 workers for permanent positions including nurses and rehabilitation specialists, and construction is expected to begin next month and open in the fall of 2013.
