Tinley Park, Ill.-based MACK Construction last month held a ground-breaking event for Windsor Estates, a 200-bed skilled-nursing facility to be built at 18300 South Lavergne Ave. in Country Club Hills, Ill.
The long-term care facility will be delivered in the summer of 2015, and will be occupied by McAllister Nursing & Rehab, which provides a range of rehabilitation treatment including physical, occupational and speech therapy. The ground-breaking, held April 24, was attended by 75 construction partners, local dignitaries and community stakeholders.
“We’re thrilled to bring much-needed long-term care to our community,” said Mayor Dwight W. Welch with the city of Country Club Hills. “This facility alone will add 120 jobs to Country Club Hills, and is the first of four new buildings being considered for the site, demonstrating our city’s stability, growth and vision for the future.”
Planning for the subsequent buildings is underway, which may include a care-giver training school also to be operated by McAllister.
Jim McClelland, chief operating officer of MACK Companies, the parent company of MACK Construction, said, “MACK is very active in Country Club Hills, having bought, redeveloped and managed more than 100 homes in the area over the past five years, so we’re proud to have an opportunity to further strengthen the community with Windsor Estates.”
MACK Construction is the general contractor on the project, with Harley Ellis Devereaux serving as lead architect.
