New Private Nursing Rooms Set to Open

The first phase of Project Envision is ready to be celebrated!
On Sunday, July 30, guests are invited to Messiah Village for self-guided tours of the brand-new Engle and Greenwood Nursing Neighborhoods. The open house will run from 2 pm – 5 pm. Each neighborhood will be home to 16 residents who will enjoy private suites with a personal bedroom and bathroom with shower. Each neighborhood boasts an open concept kitchen and a great room and living room with fireplaces and built-ins to provide plenty of bright, common space. The views from these new areas are spectacular!

The Engle Neighborhood is named in honor of former Messiah Village residents, the late Dr. Harold H. Engle and the late Miss Alma Engle. The siblings were both well-known medical professionals and their combined estate gifts were among the leading charitable gifts for this project. A special art commission by noted calligrapher Timothy Botts honoring the family and celebrating their naming gift will be unveiled at a private reception in late July.

Residents should begin moving into these private rooms in August. At this time, there are still a few private rooms available for qualified applicants. If you are interested in a loved one moving to one of these new nursing neighborhoods, please reach out to the Messiah Lifeways Welcome Center at 717.790.8201 or email life@messiahlifeways.org.
