Construction has started on Family HealthCare Network's 25,000-square-foot adult daycare facility in downtown Visalia.
"We anticipate that it will open in the summer of 2024," said Kerry Hydash, president and CEO of FHCN.
The project will use all of the 1.75 acres on the block surrounded by Murray Avenue, Tipton Street, School Avenue and Santa Fe Street, with the two-story building facing Murray Avenue. The property will have enough parking for 101 vehicles.
The large day center room on the first floor will be surrounded by activity rooms, a memory care activity room, physical therapy rooms, offices, a kitchen, a salon, examination rooms, private therapy rooms and consultation rooms. The second floor will include a conference room, break room and additional offices.
The facility will offer dental services, x-ray services, nutrition counseling and phyical therapy. Transportation to and from the center will also be offered.
"The community is aging and has new clinical needs so it makes sense to to do this," said Hydash.
The large room on the first floor of the center will also be used to host events.
"We've talked about bringing speakers in and we've talked about bringing activities in," said Hydash, adding that one possibility is having seniors who take advantage of the center's programs make presentations that share their skills.
"We're brainstorming a lot of ideas for making this a place for a lot of individuals to go," said Hydash.
The facility was designed by EBM Design Group, Inc., a Visalia-based architecture firm whose portfolio includes the Kaweah Health Urgent Care facility in Tulare, Hanford Veterinary Hospital, Dinuba Transit Center, Tulare County Library, Kings Rehabilitation Center, and Phases III, IV and V of the Tulare Outlet Mall.
