St. John Expands Its Continuum of Care with Prairie House Partnership
BROKEN ARROW, Okla. (Sept. 9, 2015) — St. John Health System began a new era of assisted living and memory care and another chapter in its expanded healthcare for Oklahomans with groundbreaking ceremonies for Prairie House on September 9 on the St. John Broken Arrow campus.
At 93,000 square feet, Prairie House will offer 105 units and 117 beds. Assisted living residents may choose from alcove, one- and two-bedroom floor plans, each with private baths. Prairie House will also include two residences of 16 units each for people with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Persons in those units will be offered Heartfelt CONNECTIONS™, a memory care program that uses reminiscence tools and customized activities to aid residents.
“This new facility extends the range of care St. John Health System offers the people of eastern Oklahoma,” says St. John Health System President and CEO David Pynn. “We are proud that our Broken Arrow facility was chosen to offer high-quality services to those who often can no longer fully care for themselves, including persons with dementia-related conditions.”
Construction is scheduled for completion in late 2016. The facility will be managed by Life Care Services.
