The $2.5 million renovation of Regina Health Center’s (RHC) skilled nursing resident rooms, nursing stations and common areas is well underway and is expected to be completed by the middle of 2020. The transformation of the facility is about supporting the mission of Regina Health Center to provide compassionate and holistic health care services primarily for members of religious communities, clergy and the elderly.
“The dignity of each person is at the heart of our mission. Respect and a spirit of compassion promote holistic health care delivery and quality of life. The renovation has been an opportunity for us to connect supporters to our mission and ensure our future for the next generation of individuals who will call Regina Health Center their home,” said RHC Executive Director Mark Yantek.
The next phase of the renovation project is the completion of the first floor, where religious live. Areas where renovations are complete have been well received by residents, staff and visitors.
“It is a joy to show people around the newly remodeled areas. The Memory Care unit is nice and bright. The rooms look very modern with the new furniture and window treatments. The lighting down the hallways pairs well with the warm looking floors and the shower rooms are sleek and elegant,” said RHC Admissions Coordinator Sharon Bournigal. “Visitors and families are wowed by the transformation and feel very welcomed and honored that we have created this environment for their family members.”
While the construction part of the renovation continues at a good pace to maintain the God-centered mission and patient-centered care, the fundraising part of the project still has to reach its goal of $2.5 million. The $1 million Matching Gift Initiative helped propel the 25th Anniversary Renovation Campaign to pass the halfway mark for the funds needed to complete the much-needed renovation.
Make a Matching Gift
Opportunities are still available for giving to fulfill the $1 million dollar match. Making a gift commitment to the renovation project at a level of $100 or more will be matched by the generous donors who made the lead $1 million dollar gift. Your donation with the match could qualify for a higher recognition level, with unique opportunities for visual recognition and naming opportunities also available.
“The generous support of donors has made this project a reality. We are in the home stretch of the matching gift campaign and you can make the difference by being a donor who names an area. We need to reach the goal and fully fund the necessary and critical updates for our residents, staff and families to continue to fulfill the five-star quality service, care and faith-filled work Regina Health Center is all about,” said RHC Executive Director Mark Yantek
