About the Davis Community:
The Health Care Center at The Davis Community welcomed its first residents in 1966 and has continued to grow in size and scope largely due to the seamless passing of the vision to the board of directors and Davis employees. In 2000, Champions Assisted Living was completed, adding another level of support services and paving the way to a more homelike environment and culture.
In 2010, the Rehabilitation and Wellness Pavilion was added to provide seniors with a state-of-the-art fitness center, outpatient therapies and short-term inpatient care. Today 50 private guest rooms are reserved for persons needing short-term rehabilitation for such conditions as knee and hip replacements or other health needs following a hospital stay.
Following a year-long strategic planning session involving the Board of Directors, residents, family members, staff, visitors, neighbors, vendors, and friends a plan was developed to change The Health Care Center from a medical model of care to a household model of care. The vision is based on the belief that seniors in long-term care deserve privacy and choice in their lives rather than living in a hospital-like environment. The decision was made to completely renovate the existing Health Care Center into ten households where residents and staff operate as a family unit. The $26 million construction project began in 2012 and two freestanding houses opened in July of 2013. The first two households in the renovated section of The Health Care Center open in April 2014 with newly renovated homes approximately every ten months until completion in 2016.
