The public is invited to a ceremonial groundbreaking for Sage Living on
Thursday, July 18, at 10:00 am on the medical center campus in East Jackson.
“We look forward to celebrating the beginning of construction with
the community.” said St. John’s Medical Center CEO Paul Beaupre,
MD. “This new facility will be a remarkable asset for Teton County,
providing a modern residence and exceptional care for seniors so they
may live near family and friends and continue to grow and participate
in our community as they age.”
Sage Living, which will replace St. John’s Living Center on the medical
center campus in East Jackson, will be the only program in the Jackson
Hole area to provide long term nursing care, featuring private rooms,
a memory support neighborhood for residents with Alzheimer’s and
other dementias, and an acute physical and functional rehabilitation program
for those recovering from stroke, traumatic injury, and illness such as
COPD and heart failure.
The event will include brief remarks by community and civic leaders as
well as officials from St. John’s Medical Center and St. John’s
Hospital Foundation. Attendees will also hear from Living Center resident
family members. Sage Living information will be provided along with refreshments
and entertainment by Living Center volunteer Judd Grossman.
“The compelling need for Sage Living has been embraced throughout
the entire community,” said Beaupre, “from the support of
SPET voters in 2017, to St. John’s staff, to everyone who participated
in surveys and town hall meetings. We are particularly grateful to St.
John’s Hospital Foundation and community donors for their ongoing
commitment and support for this vital project.”
