Concordia of the South Hills Hosts Grand Opening

Mt. Lebanon, PA - Concordia of the South Hills (CSH) will celebrate the completion of its Therapy Addition at a Grand Opening on Thursday, May 31 from 3 - 6 p.m.

A cocktail reception featuring tours, hors d'oeuvres and live entertainment will begin at 3 p.m. with the dedication ceremony scheduled for 4 in the second floor therapy gym. 

This expansion of the health center therapy area positions Concordia to serve the needs of our current residents as well as those who select us as the provider of choice in the region.  Architects Noelker & Hull designed two state-of-the-art therapy gyms located adjacent to the skilled nursing units, fully equipped kitchen for therapy simulation, open and spacious patient living rooms, private dining rooms for family use, multiple large screen TVs and updated private accommodations.  Martik Bros. began the $970, 000 construction mid-December. 

CSH is licensed for 46 skilled nursing beds and serves 30 short-term rehab patients per day according to CEO Brain Hortert.

Administrator Kay Frndak-Suder says the 3000 sq. ft., two-story addition will enhance efficiency and communication for therapists and nurses and provide convenience for rehab patients.

Concordia Lutheran Ministries, parent company for CSH, acquired the Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) October 26, 2009.  In addition to the skilled nursing (health center) area, the facility consists of 126 one- and two-bedroom independent living apartments, 48 personal care and 12 memory-support units.
