(Updated 8/17) The Woodbine Rehabilitation and Healthcare facility (2729 King Street) near Ivy Hill Cemetery is seeking permission from the city to build a new three-story addition to the healthcare complex, though the overall number of beds will stay the same.
Woodbine is a nursing home just off King Street in the Rosemont neighborhood. Woodbine Property 1, LLC has filed a request for a Development Special Use Permit to construct a new building that fronts King Street.
“The addition to the nursing home will help to facilitate additional private rooms while maintaining the total number of 307 licensed beds,” the application said. “The Applicant also proposes to increase the number of parking spaces from 143 to 154 to meet the required parking for the nursing home.”
The application said the new building will help Woodbine offer more private rooms, though the total number of beds at the facility won’t increase.
“In summary, the proposed addition will improve the patient experience at Woodbine Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center by reducing the number of quad- and triple-occupancy rooms and increasing the number of private rooms for patients,” the application said.
The project is scheduled to go to the Planning Commission on Thursday, Oct. 6.
