NEW BERLIN – ProHealth Care will expand the New Berlin campus of ProHealth Regency Senior Communities by building three large additions, nearly doubling the number of apartments available for area seniors.
The $20 million project will add 153 apartments, bringing the total number of units to 308 senior living residences, 88 assisted living units and additional program and service space in one connected complex.
The project must be approved by the city, a ProHealth spokesman said.
“The Regency in New Berlin has been at capacity since it opened in 1990,” said Debra Bertacchini, administrator of ProHealth Regency Senior Communities. “The three new wings will allow us to serve the growing senior population in a vibrant community that meets residents’ needs and supports their independence.”
Construction is expected to begin in July and occur in two phases over the next two years. Reservations for residences are now being accepted. Regency residents must be at least 62.
The New Berlin campus is at 13750 W. National Ave. The project will include underground parking and additional common areas in each new wing.
The expansion will include:
- Fifteen one-bedroom and 30 two-bedroom units in a new northwest building along Sunnyslope Road, to open in fall 2018.
- Six one-bedroom and 51 two-bedroom units in a new northeast building along Fieldpointe Drive, to open in fall 2018.
- Twelve one-bedroom and 39 two-bedroom units in a new southwest building along Sunnyslope Road, to open in summer 2019.
Residents of the new wings will have access to campus amenities such as on-site medical clinic staffed by ProHealth; social, recreational and wellness programs; personal and professional care; daily meals; housekeeping and linen services; and transportation to ProHealth Medical Group clinics.
“We’re dedicated to providing everything our residents need to age in place within the most supportive and least restrictive environment possible,” Bertacchini said. “We’re excited about this project because it will allow us to serve more local seniors and further energize the Regency community with the addition of new residents.”
Outdoor areas will feature an entertainment and dining area with a bocce court and putting green.
The three Regency communities offer a range of specialized services that can be tailored to the needs of each resident:
