As you may know, we will soon start construction on the much anticipated long term care center
that will replace Pioneer Manor. We’ve got some great plans in place, now we needa name!
We pulled a committee of CCMH representatives and community members together to come up with a method to determine a name. The committee unanimously wanted you, the community, involved. To make it easy, we’ve narrowed it down to two choices. Will you help us select which one to use? It’s up to you!
Which name do you prefer?
The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center: The new long-term care center
is being built on the edge of Lasting Legacy Park in Gillette. The word “legacy” literally implies anything handed down from the past, as from an ancestor or predecessor. The committee also felt that young or old, humans share the desire to leave a legacy or impression on this world they all will eventually leave.
Seasons Living and Rehabilitation Center: One goes through many seasons
of living a full life. Those seasons can be literally spring, summer, fall and winter. Conceptually they can be birth, childhood, adulthood and maturity. The seasons of our bodies can include health, surgery and rehabilitation, sickness and wellness. Sometimes we endure seasons and other times we feel anticipation and hope for the next one.

About the new long term care facility naming process
Jet Marketing was hired to develop a best-practice process to help us name the new facility. On Wednesday, February 26, the committee and several staff met for a facilitated session. The goal was to leave the session with two viable facility name options for the community at large to choose from.
The committee developed a list of characteristics, or attributes, that would explain not only the services to be offered (long-term care, short-term rehabilitation and adult daycare) but how those services will be delivered and what they hoped the experience would be for those who live at the facility on both a short and long-term basis. Attributes identified include:
- Sense of Community
- Compassion and Quality Care
- Dignity and Respect
- Optimal and Purposeful Living
- Lively and Vibrant
- Commitment and Loyalty
- Support (of patients and families)
- Light and Bright
Further, the committee wanted to develop two names that were non-age specific since the short-term rehabilitation services will serve people of all ages and a significant number of current long-term care residents are age 55 or younger. The Community Relations Department provided a thorough report of similar facilities in the state, local parks, schools and other facility names to avoid like names.
Watch for an upcoming announcement on which name you selected for us!
