CENTRE CREST NURSING HOME TALKS NEW FACILITY AND FUNDRAISER


I’M REBECCA PETNER. I’M HERE WITH BETSY.ER. TELL ME YOUR TITLE. I’M PRESIDENT OF THE NONPROFIT BOARD FOR CENTER CREST WHICH IS SUMTER CARE. FOR PEOPLE WATCHING THAT MIGHT NOT KNOW CAN YOU TELL ME A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE FACILITY. CENTER CREST IS A NURSING HOME. IT WAS THE COUNTY NURSING HOME FOR MANY, MANY YEARS. AND IN 2013 IT WENT TO NONPROFIT. IT’S HERE TO TAKE CARE OF THE RESIDENT OF CENTER COUNTY. WHEN THEY HAVE NEED FOR LONG-TERM CARE AND SHORT-TERM CARE. THIS IS RIGHT HERE IN BELLEFONTE. CORRECT. IN BELLEFONTE WE’RE GETTING READY TO MOVE. WE ARE BUILDING A NEW FACILITY THIS BUILDING THAT WE’RE IN RIGHT NOW IS OVER 80 YEARS OLD. AND AS WE PROGRESS INTO THE BABE BOOMER AGE WE NEED MORE SPACE. MORE TYPES OF DIFFERENT CARE AND FACILITIES. SO WE ARE CURRENTLY IN THE PROCESS OF BUILDING A NEW BUILDING WHICH WILL BE A LITTLE BIT BETTER THAN DOUBLE THE SIZE OF THIS ONE. IT WILL BE 146,000 PLUS FEET. OKAY. AND SO THIS IS A HUGE EFFORT I’M SURE. TELL ME SOME OF THE THINGS YOUR DOING IN THE WORKS. THAT YOU HAVE GOING ON. IT’S 45 MILLION BUILDING. WE’VE RECEIVED A LOAN FROM USDA FOR 36 MILLION. TO HELP US. CENTRE CARE HAD TO COME UP WITH AN ADDITIONAL 6 MILLION DOLLARS. 6,000 WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE. 6 MILLION DOLLARS IN ORDER TO FACILITY THE LOAN. AND SO WE HAVE ACCOMPLISHED PRETTY MUCH ALL OF THAT. WE ARE NOW KICKING OFF OUR NEXT CAPITAL CAMPAIGN PROCESS WHICH IS A $2 MILLION DOLLAR CAMPAIGN IN ORDER TO ADD THOSE HOME TOUCHES. YOU KNOW, IN THE PROCESS OF BUILDING YOUR BUILDING WE’RE DOING ALL THE THINGS THAT ARE REQUIRED BY THE STATE AND LOCAL AND ALL OF THOSE. BUT THERE ARE JUST NEAT LITTLE THINGS THAT MAKE IT A HOME AND THAT’S WHAT WE WANT. AND SO THAT’S PART OF WHAT THIS NEXT $2 MILLION CAMPAIGN IS ABOUT. IS TO RAISE THE ADDITIONAL FUNDS THAT WE DON’T HAVE TO TAKE OUT OF OPERATING SO THAT WE CAN MEET THE NEEDS. OKAY. KEEP THE LIGHTS ON. KEEP THE FOOD ON THE TABLE. ALL OF THOSE THINGS. BUT HAVE THOSE NEW EXTRA LITTLE TOUCHES THAT WILL MAKE THIS FEEL LIKE HOME. REALLY LIKE A HOME. TELL ME ABOUT YOU TEAMING WITH THE FIELD. FOR THIS EVENT COMING UP. AND YOU SAID IT WAS MONDAY SEPTEMBER 9th. THE FIELD HAS VERY GENEROUSLY TEAMED UP WITH US. OUR STAFF HERE IN THE BUILDING HAVE BEEN WORKING SINCE MAY I BELIEVE. ON A CAPITAL CAMPAIGN DONATION FOR US. AND THEY HAVE DONE SOME AMAZING EVENTS. THEN THE ONE COMING UP MOST RECENT IS THE FIELD WHERE 10% OF EVERY MEAL THAT DAY WILL BE DONATED BACK TO US TO GO TOWARDS THIS NEW CAMPAIGN. AND MEET THE NEEDS OF OUR RESIDENTS. SO COME HAVE LUNCH. DINNER, WHAT EVER. LUNCH, DINNER ANYTHING. DESSERT WHATEVER YOU CAN THINK OF TO COME OUT AND JOIN US AT THE FIELD. THAT’S GREAT. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS SHOW UP. JUST HAVE YOUR MEAL AND 10% GOES HELPING TO CREATE THIS NEW FACILITY THAT SOUNDS LIKE IT WILL BE AN AMAZING PLACE. LIT. AND A HOME. A HOME. A HOME. THAT’S THE KEY.
