An assisted-living and memory-care center is planned in Fruitland next to the planned St. Luke's Fruitland Medical Plaza.
The 53-unit Spring Creek of Fruitland center will be built by the Edgewood Real Estate Investment Trust of Grand Forks, N.D., a REIT that owns assisted-living center in the north-central and northwestern U.S., including several in Idaho. It will be leased to Edgewood Group LLC, a companion business also based in Grand Forks that operates senior-living centers.
Edgewood said Monday that construction of the $6.5 million center will begin immediately with an expected summer 2013 opening. Spring Creek will have 19 memory-care and 34 assisted-living units, a movie theater, chapel, salon, library, formal dining room and a secured courtyard with walking path. Edgewood said it will offer employment to at least 30 local residents.
We are thrilled to become a part of the Fruitland community and bring our assisted-living and memory-care services to the area, said Michael Sharp, regional vice president of Edgewood Management Group.
Edgewood operates assisted-living and memory centers in Boise, Eagle, Meridian, American Falls and Soda Springs.
