Delmar Gardens Adding Assisted Living Services with $33 Million Expansion
The company received approval to convert some of its current units at five of its facilities in O'Fallon and the St. Louis area from a state health commission earlier this week.
The O'Fallon location of Delmar Gardens is adding assited-living beds to its current senior housing facilities following a decision by a state health committee to approval the $33 million project.
The Missouri Health Facilities Review Committee granted the request at a Jan. 7 meeting. Delmar Gardens had submitted what are called "certificates of need" to add the beds to five of its St. Louis facilities, including the Chesterfield Villas retirement community.
The O'Fallon facility is located aat 7068 South Outer Road 364. Renovations will cost approximately $9.6 million and will add 65 assisted living beds. The four other facilities receiving assited living beds are located in Town and Country, Chesterfield, Florissant and St. Louis.
According to a report in the St. Louis Business Journal, it represents the first time Delmar Gardens has entered the assited living market. The companies CEO Gabe Grossberg said the move allows the company to provide licensed assisted-living services "in-house" to residents in their retirement communities as they age.
