The Woodbine Rehabilitation and Healthcare Facility (2729 King Street) could be getting a significant expansion that should help make it a little less crowded.

The facility isn’t adding any new beds, but a new three-story front addition would allow the nursing home to offer more private homes for residents.

According to the staff report:

The Applicant proposes to construct a three-story addition of approximately 31,909 gross square feet at the front (King Street side) of the existing nursing home building, in the location of the existing entrance lobby. This proposal will remove a portion of an existing entryway and replace it with a three-story addition to reduce the number of quad- and triple-occupancy rooms and increasing the number of private rooms for patients with no change to the total number of beds

The new addition will add 31,909 square feet to the building and increase height to a maximum of 45 feet.

The project is coming into the City Council meeting with support from staff and the Planning Commission.

The expansion plans are scheduled for review at the Saturday, Oct. 15, City Council meeting.
