Sisters hold groundbreaking for new residential, healthcare facility
On Sunday, August 1, 2021, as the Bells of Providence Heights rung out, the Sisters of Divine Providence held a groundbreaking ceremony to officially kick off their new building project.
Named "The Commons at Providence Heights," it will be a place of hospitality, inclusivity, creating and celebrating community. The name acknowledges that all we have comes from our Provident God and is to be held in common. Situating "The Commons" at Providence Heights honors the original name of the whole property and preserves the legacy of the Sisters of Divine Providence.
The new three-story residential and healthcare facility will offer up-to-date care for the current and future health needs of the Sisters. The building will consist of a mix of healthcare rooms, private independent rooms and one- and two-bedroom apartments. Site amenities will include an outdoor dining terrace, community garden, healthcare garden and walking paths that connect to the rest of the campus. Construction is scheduled to be complete in September 2022.
The first tree planted at The Commons was a McIntosh apple tree, in recognition of the apple trees that flourished on the property from its earliest days.
Joining Sisters, Associates and employees at the ceremony were representatives from Derck & Edson--the project's planning and design firm--and Warfel--the project's construction company.
