The residents of Greensboro and the surrounding area are, on average, getting older – in large part due to all the Baby Boomers in the area – and that means that there’s an increasing need for adult care facilities. Now, the State of North Carolina is seeking public input on a new facility planned for Greensboro.
Guilford Opco II LLC and Guilford Propco II LLC have filed a “certificate of need” application with the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) to establish a new, 60-bed adult care home in Greensboro.
Called “The Stanbridge,” the facility would relocate 28 adult care home beds and 32 special care unit beds from Holden Heights.
The project, which is expected to cost just under $10 million, will be completed in February 2027 if it's approved and all goes according to plan.
As part of the approval process – which allows for input from area residents – a public hearing for the proposal will be held on Thursday, Dec. 15 at 10 a.m. in the Benjamin Branch Library at 1530 Benjamin Parkway in Greensboro.
Also, anyone may file written comments regarding the project. Comments must be received by the Healthcare Planning and Certificate of Need Section no later than 5 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 1.
Your remarks may be submitted as an attachment to an email if they’re sent to DHSR.CON.Comments@dhhs.nc.gov.
Comments may also be mailed to the Healthcare Planning and Certificate of Need Section (Division of Health Service Regulation) at 2704 Mail Service Center, Raleigh, NC, 27699-2704.
Those who want more information regarding the planned facility can call Tanya Saporito, a project analyst for the Healthcare Planning and Certificate of Need Section. Saporito can be reached at (919) 855-3873.
Is this private enterprise, or transfer payments to the faithful?
Another thing. I looks to me that if my parents spent 18+ years taking care of me, that I can take 18 years to take care of them.
What is the need for a new facility since Holden Heights is already housing 60 residents now. According to the article above, the Standbridge will not be adding more beds, just moving the 60 residents already in Holden Heights. How is Standbridge fulfilling a need? There must be more to the story.
Another example of government interference raising costs! More choices of places to live/receive care = reduced costs. Monopolies never reduce cost, they most always increase cost. Controlling supply (adult care beds) creates monopoly!
John, maybe I missed it. Where will this be located?
So a low-end facility is going to build a new building and transfer the people into it along with their staff in order to do what exactly? It won’t increase the number of spaces for caregiving in the County and unless they hire new administration it won’t improve the care being given to the residents, it will only give them a shiny new building to con people into putting their family members into. Sketchy. We need better.
With a nursing shortage, irrelevant.
If this is in dire need why is it requiring 4 yrs to build. I’m 81 yrs old so do I put my request in?
