It’s been a summer of groundbreaking ceremonies for BHSH Spectrum Health West Michigan. In July, it broke ground its 12-story, 240,000-square-foot Grand Rapids Outpatient Center. Thursday, BHSH broke ground on its new $37 million single-story, 94,000-square-foot Rehab and Nursing Center.

The new facility at 1226 Cedar Street NE will provide long-term and hospice care. Its design focused on making residents feel at home with a mix of private and semi-private rooms accommodating up to 120 people. Around-the-clock care will include therapeutic programs and an on-site dialysis center.

The new Rehab and Nursing Center is scheduled to open in spring of 2024 and replaces the Fuller Street continuing care facility.
