It’s an exciting time for the Willowbend community as construction is underway to help transform the campus and expand and improve services for our residents and teams.
The new Willowbend Healthcare and Rehabilitation will be located at the north end of Canal Street behind the Bayou Vista subdivision in Marion, Arkansas. The building will offer an additional 20 skilled nursing beds, a specialized wing of private rooms for short-term rehabilitation, and a large, state-of-the-art therapy room. A designated activity room will allow for enhanced signature programs and community events.
The new building is expected to open in Summer 2019. Be sure to check back here for more updates!
