Broken Bow, NE: Groundbreaking Ceremony For The New Vetter Health Services Center – Brookestone View

Dignitaries1      Breaking Ground

The smell of freshly mowed alfalfa filled the air as a large crowd gathered for a special ceremony north of Melham Hospital in Broken Bow on Monday morning, Aug. 10th. Standing on top of the hill on the somewhat breezy morning, the guests in attendance were given an opportunity to take in the view that will soon greet the patients and residents of Brookestone View in Broken Bow.

The groundbreaking ceremony was held for the new skilled nursing and rehabilitation center Monday morning, led by Mitch Elliott, Chief Development Officer for Vetter Health Services. Elliott explained that the new center, which will be known as Brookestone View, will be built on the four-acre property located on the east side of Laurel Drive. It will be a 42,000 square-foot facility which will have the capacity to serve 60 residents, which could be a combination of long term care, short term rehabilitation or memory support.

States Elliott, “the Vetter Health Services design team is going to be incorporating a “Nebraska Theme” that will include a lodge-feel, combined with a refined down home farm environment and rustic cowboy blend. Each household area will have a nod to recognized areas or quadrants of Custer County – thanks to suggestions from the team at the Custer County Museum.”

One of the dignitaries in attendance for the groundbreaking was State Senator Matt Williams. Senator Williams commended the efforts not only of Vetter Health Services, but of the community of Broken Bow for making this project happen.

Vetter Health Services anticipates beginning to move dirt on the project within the next few weeks, with the center to be completed by late October 2016.
