An open house Thursday, July 25, celebrating a new addition to Cedarwood assisted living, honoring Bill Welch, chief executive officer, on his retirement, and celebrating the 50th anniversary of Jefferson Community Health Center was a success.
An estimated 150 attended the event, said Lana Likens, director of public relations at JCHC.
We were pleased to see so many community members, friends and supporters of JCHC and Cedarwood attending, Likens said. Community support has always been a tremendous asset for JCHC and Cedarwood.
Cedarwood added eight one-bedroom units. The four upstairs units are being used as temporary office space for Jefferson Community Health Center staff during renovation at the hospital. The four downstairs units are available for tenants.
Cedarwood opened in 2004, and is Fairburys first and only licensed assisted living facility. Once all of the new units are available for tenants Cedarwood will have 50 units.
