QUAKER HEIGHTS MAJOR CONSTRUCTION PROJECT
Updated 01/01/2015 by
Quaker Heights Addition Construction is underway for the new 11,000+ square foot Quaker Heights addition. Estimated completion date for the new wing is summer of 2015. When finished, it will house 15 private suites for short-stay residents coming to the facility for post-hospital rehab, a dining room and kitchen as well as a state-of-the-art therapy gym for residents and outpatients. Quaker Heights expects a continuing surge in outpatient therapy usage. Already, increasing numbers of outpatients choose Quaker Heights Therapy for its friendly, knowledgeable staff. A number of existing semi-private rooms will convert to private in keeping with the market shifts when the new wing opens.

Quaker Heights’ green storage barn was torn down to make way for the structure. A new pole barn was constructed off the High Street driveway that leads to the back of the existing health care area. This barn will house Quaker Heights' vehicles.
Quaker Heights Addition Much dirt was moved to elevate the site pad by nearly five feet. At this writing, the footers are nearly completed to prepare for pouring the foundation. It is estimated that the foundation will be in by mid-January. The red barn pictured is being demolished very soon. The Museum at the Friends Home Trustees and others spread the word that arrangements could be made with any individuals or groups interested in the structure, or its wood, to take down the barn. Some pieces were removed, but it was determined that there was little historical value to the barn’s original construction.
This wing will be accessible from Miami St. and have its own entrance and parking. The new construction adjoins the current building at the end of a long-term care hallway. Several existing rooms already have been closed due to the work. At the time of groundbreaking, the project was estimated to take 10 months. Ruscilli Construction of Columbus, Ohio, is the contractor. They were selected due to their extensive experience in handling HUD loan construction.
