"The addition of the Village at Nazareth campus is another step of executing our vision of providing a full continuum from independent living through skilled nursing services for our residents," Lu Westhoff, administrator of Nazareth Living Center, stated in a news release. "This is another measure the Board of Trustees has completed in our vision to offer on one campus a community that supports older adults and their families."
Blessing ceremony participants included representatives from Nazareth Living Center's ministry partners, Sister Suzanne Wesley, CSJ, Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet Province Leadership Team, and Kevin Rymanowski and Chris Boldt, Benedictine Health System.
