ANNOUNCING THE REBUILD OF EVERGREEN CARE HOME!!
Evergreen Baptist Campus of Care in partnership with Fraser Health, is pleased to announce the addition of 92 new Complex Care beds to its White Rock facility.  The new beds will be provided in conjunction with the replacement of 107 existing beds on Evergreen’s campus.  
 
When completed in April 2016, Evergreen will provide beds for 199 residents in a state-of-the-art facility purpose-built for seniors with complex aging related illnesses.  Evergreen will maintain the 50 beds built in 1996 in its D-Wing.  In total Evergreen will have 249 Complex Care beds, in addition to its 110 Supportive Housing suites, and 84 Assisted Living suites.
 
The project is being delivered in partnership with Fraser Health, and this announcement further cements both Fraser Health’s and Evergreen’s commitment to providing quality care and services for seniors in the White Rock/South Surrey community.  
 
Some highlights of the planned new building include neighbourhoods designed to the highest standards for senior care; community accessible hair salon, physiotherapy/rehab studio, and café; beautiful landscaped gardens and walking loops enhancing the current park like setting of the facility; and a new kitchen with capacity to serve current residents and expand on services already provided to the community by Meals on Wheels.
 
Evergreen’s campus will remain 100% operational during construction, ensuring all current residents will be able to stay in their existing Complex Care beds before transitioning to the new building when it opens.
