In the spirit of honoring the past, officials from the West Vue Nursing Home broke ground for their new Green House homes the same way it happened over half a century ago–with mules and a plow!
August 3, 2017 was a bright and sunny day to officially launch the construction of three 10-bedroom Green House homes. In fact construction equipment was ready to begin their work once the event had concluded! Located in West Plains, Missouri, the West Vue Nursing Home has been dedicated to providing care to elders in their rural community since the mid 1960’s and has earned a stellar reputation in the area. In addition to Green House staff on hand for the event, GHN Architects and Engineers President Brad Baker expressed his eagerness to be part of the the project and his deep support for the Green House model, and his hope that more will be built.
The decision to build the homes was made with careful thought and consideration by the board of directors and leadership at West Vue. President and CEO, Jalynn Meidell said that when she heard about the model, she knew she wanted West Vue to be part of it.
The homes are slated to open later next year. Congratulations to all involved in the development of this project!
