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

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.
