Feb. 24, 2013 @ 12:15 AM

ROME TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- Chancellor Health Partners, which owns more than a dozen senior living communities in Ohio and West Virginia, is planning to build a $12 million project in eastern Lawrence County. The project will include a medical facility overseen by Cabell Huntington Hospital.

The Columbus-based firm, which operates Wyngate Senior Living of Barboursville, plans to begin construction of a senior living project in Rome Township this spring, according to a news release.

The project is to be built on a site overlooking the Ohio River. It is on property across Ohio 7 from the Lawrence County Fairgrounds.

The senior living community project is set to open in the spring of 2014.

The project consists of 30 apartments for independent living residents, 40 assisted living apartments and 20 memory care apartments, according to the release.

Cabell Huntington Hospital will operate a 4,000-square-foot medical facility on the property. The facility will serve Wyngate residents, but be open to the public as well, according to the release. It will offer primary and urgent care, imaging and lab services, physical therapy and home health care services, according to the release.

Residents will have a choice of four apartment styles with a private patio or balcony.

Meals, housekeeping, activities and supportive services will be available to the residents on site.

The assisted living services will include 24-hour oversight, nursing staff, three meals per day, planned activities, housekeeping, laundry services and scheduled transportation, according to the release.

The campus will have landscaped walking paths, flower gardens and a pavilion for events along the river. Residents will be able to receive cook-to-order menu selections from an on-site chef.

More information about the available services is available at www.chancellorhealth.com.
