New Assisted Living Facility Announced

April 17, 2015Chippewa Falls- In order to be able to provide the complete spectrum of senior living services in Chippewa Falls, Wissota Health and Regional Vent Center has announced plans to construct a 36 bed assisted living facility on Lakeland Drive. Located just a block from Wissota Health's front door, the new facility will meet the needs of both independent seniors and those requiring additional daily living services and supports.

Part of the larger, local healthcare company Dove Healthcare & Affiliates, Wissota Health and Regional Vent Center currently provides rehabilitation and post-hospital care, ventilator, tracheostomy, long-term, and end-of-life care. Memory care needs are provided by Chippewa Falls sister facility Rutledge Home on Bridgewater Avenue.

Regional Director of Operations Jeremy Kiley said, "This creates a continuum of care that will undoubtedly benefit Wissota Health and Regional Vent Center and the community of Chippewa Falls. The new property will also benefit from the close proximity to sister facilities and its location relative to local clinics and St. Joseph's Hospital.  Construction will begin in the spring of 2016."

Wissota Health and Regional Vent Center is rated "5 Stars" by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid and is a 2014 Achievement in Quality Award Winner from the American Health Care Association. For more information, call 715-720-2797 or visit www.wissotahealth.com.
