Stonerise Princeton Unveils Renovated Care Center
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (November 17, 2021) – Stonerise Princeton, one of West Virginia’s leading providers of transitional and skilled nursing care, unveiled its new care center this week after undergoing major renovations that will provide additional comfort and support for patients and visitors.
The renovations, which began earlier this year, were planned as a means of benefiting patients, team members and patient families. The improvements include expansive updates throughout both the skilled nursing and assisted living floors of the care center.
“Reinvesting in our centers has always been a priority for Stonerise,” said Stonerise Chief Executive Officer Larry Pack. “Part of our commitment to those we serve is to provide modern, comfortable and safe spaces to live in and receive care. We believe it’s critical to continually dedicate resources to keep our buildings up to date.”
Stonerise Princeton’s +new 1,500-square-foot therapy gym features a patient training kitchen for occupational therapy, bathroom and top of the line equipment in a bright, inviting atmosphere. Through the conversion of space, the majority of the building now features private rooms for patients with private bathrooms and handicap accessible showers.
The improvements also enabled Stonerise Princeton to increase its license from 64 to 80 certified skilled nursing beds. Multiple hospice suites were added as a new service offering. Other improvements include a new café space and made-to-order kitchen for short-term transitional care patients. The Chapel was also renovated to be more inviting with more natural light and a wall of glass windows. Much of the building received new furniture, paint, handrails, and ceilings.
Stonerise Princeton Administrator & Center CEO, Kourtney Pennington, says the renovations have already made a huge impact on those who call the center home.
“Our patients and team members are so excited to show off the new center,” Pennington said. “There is a sense of pride and enthusiasm around everything from the artwork to the new therapy gym and dining spaces.”
Pack and Pennington were joined by the President & CEO of the Chamber of Commerce of the Two Virginias, Jeff Disibbio on Tuesday for a ceremonial ribbon cutting at the new center. Joe Sanders, who is a resident at Stonerise Princeton did the honors of cutting the ribbon.
Throughout its 12-year history, Stonerise has placed a strong emphasis on ensuring that its physical spaces meet the needs of patients and families. Stonerise only offers private and semi-private rooms. To view a virtual slideshow of Stonerise Princeton, visit: Stonerise.com/Princeton.
