Trilogy: Senior complex expects 2015 opening

The exterior of the former downtown King's Daughters' Hospital may look the same, but the interior - and name - has changed.
The multi-level senior living facility currently undergoing renovations will be known as the River Terrace Health Campus when the facility opens, Trilogy spokeswoman Leslie Knox said.
Officials wanted to link the Trilogy-owned Thornton Terrace Health Campus to the new community while also highlighting the senior living community's location in downtown Madison, just blocks from the Ohio River.
A Trilogy team continues to work on a new logo for the site, which will be included on signage around the building.
Knox also said most of the demolition inside the building has been completed, and Trilogy is now in the process of bidding out projects to subcontractors.
Bidding will end in the next 30 to 45 days, she said. After the bids are evaluated, crews will begin construction near the end of the summer.
Trilogy officials expect it will take about 250 days to renovate the four-floor facility.
Officials said in February that the senior living center will include 15 private short-term rehabilitation suites for post-surgical therapy on the first floor with the second floor serving as a skilled-nursing area with 18 private suites and eight semi-private or companion suites.
The third floor is expected to have 26 assisted-living apartments, with three semi-private apartments.
Independent-living spaces will be included on the fourth floor with nine one-bedroom apartments and six two-bedroom apartments.
"We're excited to actually move out of the demolition phase and into construction," Knox said.
Trilogy President and CEO Randy Bufford said during a joint press conference with King's Daughters' Health officials in January 2013 that the new facility would bring about 120 full-time jobs to Madison.
The company took possession of the former KDH property on April 1, 2013, after purchasing the former hospital building and other area buildings for $1. Since, then, the company has been clearing out the facility, demolishing the interior and planning for renovations.
Trilogy officials hope to open the River Terrace Health Campus to residents in the late summer or fall of 2015.
I was wondering if the apartment will have own washer and dryer hook up.So many use walkers and would be hard to have to go down hall to room with basket to get to them washed.I know several that live where they have to go to basement and just doesn't sound like planned out very well. That is just my two cents input. At this time I do not have any family members that will need you (or anyplace)
