Wethersfield, CT (PRWEB) May 17, 2015
Cambridge Health and Rehabilitation Center, a provider of post-hospital rehabilitation and nursing, held a groundbreaking ceremony and reception at their 2428 Easton Turnpike location in Fairfield on April 28. A reception took place for the more than 70 attendees, including Fairfield First Selectman Michael Tetreau and State Representative Tony Hwang, of Fairfield, as well as other healthcare and community business leaders.
In announcing the major renovations and construction, Lew Abramson, administrator at Cambridge Health and Rehabilitation, noted significant enhancements to the center, including the addition of 22 private patient rooms, bringing the total to 48 private rooms in the center, which can accommodate up to 160 short-term rehabilitation patients and long-term care residents. Additionally, new lighting, resident and patient room fixtures and furniture are slated for the project.
“Cambridge will have a brand new, modern look and feel,” stated Abramson. “We’re very excited to increase the number of private rooms as well as increasing our therapy gymnasium to accommodate a new occupational therapy kitchen. Today we mark the beginning of the physical transformation of Cambridge Center into what we hope to be one of the premier short term rehabilitation centers in Fairfield County.”
Official construction and remodeling began several weeks ago and is being divided into several phases, with the final phase expected to be completed in 2016. Carlin Construction of New London, CT is heading up the project, designed by MBH Architecture of West Hartford. Financing for this project is through First Niagara Bank, of Manchester.
Cambridge Center, as well as its nearby sister center, Ludlowe Center for Health and Rehabilitation, are managed by National HealthCare Associates of Wethersfield, CT and Lynbrook, NY.
