This afternoon Virginia Lutheran Homes celebrated a big groundbreaking at the Brandon Oaks Rehabilitation Facility on Brandon Avenue in Roanoke.
The $7.9 million project was designed using the input of both patients and nursing staff.
"You never know exactly when its going to happen," says Lucas Snipes, an administrator for Brandon Oaks. "But the time that we've spent has been good and the involvement of the staff has been wonderful. We've got a very good product we're going to share with patients in the very near future."
The project is expected to be completed within 12 to 14 months.
