Edgewood Healthcare and Edgewood Real Estate Investment Trust (Edgewood REIT), both of Grand Forks, N.D., invite the public to join in a groundbreaking ceremony on Wednesday, November 6, 2019 at 4pm. Construction is set to begin in early November on Edgewood’s new residential senior health campus and medical office in Grand Forks, located between 40th Avenue S and 47th Avenue S, west of Altru Health System’s South Campus. The ceremony will take place at the 47th Avenue S entrance.
Plans for the 20-acre, 170-unit development include approximately 30 patio homes for those 55+, a senior living building with 112 Assisted Living and basic care apartments and a 28-unit Memory Care community, specially designed for those living with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. Anticipated on-site services and amenities include a therapy gym, clubhouse, bistro, coffee shop, rooftop patio, fitness center, chapel, theater and on-campus ponds and walking paths. The campus will also include an on-campus walk-in clinic to treat residents as well as the public.
“Edgewood has a long history of providing quality care and services to seniors in our area and we look forward to continuing that tradition today and for years to come,” said Philip Gisi, owner and CEO of Edgewood. “Working with a variety of area medical providers over the years has been a great experience. We look forward to partnering with Altru Health System to improve access to these vital resources and health services, helping enhance the quality of life for our area seniors,” continued Gisi.
The new campus will be home to Edgewood’s third Grand Forks-area senior living community. Edgewood Healthcare currently operates both Edgewood Parkwood, 749 South 30th Street, Grand Forks and Edgewood Memory Care, 608 5th Avenue NW, East Grand Forks. Edgewood REIT has also entered into a long-term agreement to lease the new senior health campus to Edgewood Healthcare.
“We are pleased to again expand our services in North Dakota,” said Robert Ford, Jr., Chief Operating Officer of Edgewood
Healthcare’s Senior Living division. “This is home for our company, , it only makes sense that we continue offering highquality,
consistent and innovative care to our neighbors and friends in Grand Forks,” continued Ford.
