A ground-breaking was held Friday for a new skilled nursing facility at the East Longmeadow skilled nursing center.
The new facility will be located at 305 Maple Street.
The goal is to bring in modern technology and privacy for the patients at the facility.
Berkshire Healthcare President William Jones told 22News what makes this facility special. He said, “It’s state of the art technology and design. 131 private rooms, which is unique in this market in particular.”
The new skilled nursing facility is scheduled to open in 2020.
