Edgewood Healthcare recently announced plans to develop a residential senior housing and health campus within a 40-acre tract it owns in south Grand Forks, located between 40th Avenue S and 47th Avenue S. The property is located to the north of South Middle School and adjacent to the Scheels Baseball Field and city park.
Plans for the development include twin homes and patio homes for rent or sale, along with independent and assisted living apartments. Edgewood plans to develop over 200 units on the site over the next several years. Altru Health System will operate on-site medical services, including a clinic with extended walk-in hours to serve residents within the development and also to the general public, along with other medical services such as pharmacy and therapy services. Amenities will include a clubhouse, bistro, coffee shop, attached heated garages, rooftop patio, fitness center, chapel, theater and on-campus ponds and walking paths.
“Edgewood Village in south Grand Forks is an example of our efforts to improve access and coordination of care for seniors that live in our communities,” said Philip Gisi, owner and CEO of Edgewood. “We look forward to partnering with Altru to improve access to these vital resources and health services, and help enhance the quality of life for our area seniors,” continued Gisi.
Edgewood plans to break ground in mid-to-late summer 2019. The new community will be Edgewood’s third Grand Forks-area senior living community. Edgewood also owns and operates Edgewood Parkwood, 749 South 30th Street, Grand Forks and Edgewood Memory Care, 608 5th Avenue NW, East Grand Forks.
“The opportunity to offer care at Edgewood Village aligns with Altru’s mission and vision. With our expanded focus on providing access to primary care, a convenient south-end location provides an excellent access point for both the seniors in the community, those with more complex care healthcare needs, and families living in south Grand Forks,” shared Brad Wehe, Altru’s CEO.
