EW Howell Construction Group has completed its work on a new assisted living facility in Kings Park.
St. Johnland Assisted Living, located at 393 Sunken Meadow Road, is a two-story, 68,000-square-foot facility with 80 residential units and 100 beds.
The new assisted living facility was built adjacent to the existing St. Johnland Nursing Center on the 100-acre complex owned by the nonprofit organization. Designed by KDA Architects, it has four wings of residential units, rather than the long, linear design found in many care facilities, enabling easier mobility for residents and nursing staff, according to a company statement.
Amenities at the facility include a large lobby with library space, a full-service kitchen and dining room with access to exterior courtyards, and resident laundry rooms. The second-floor features areas for art and cultural activities, and a wellness suite which hosts physical therapy and fitness. Three-quarters of the residents will be Medicaid eligible, which opens the facility to people of all financial backgrounds.
“In addition to a multitude of amenities and activities, residents have the added benefit of the facility’s proximity to the organization’s nursing center and other services,” EW Howell’s Giuseppe Iuliucci, who served as project manager on the Kings Park facility, said in the statement.
In recent years, Plainview-based EW Howell has served as general contractor on several senior housing facilities, including Whisper Woods at Smithtown and Orchard Estate of Woodbury for Benchmark Senior Living, The Residences at Plainview for Capitol Seniors Housing, and communities for Sunrise Senior Living in Huntington and Summit, N.J.
