Long Term Care Facility

The Legacy Living & Rehabilitation Center

J. Scull logo

The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center, part of Campbell County Health, is now open on 9.11 acres in Gillette, Wyoming. The 154,000 square foot long term care and rehab facility offers 152 private rooms and eight double occupancy suites for couples, each with a separate bathroom and wheelchair accessible shower. Plans feature a secure memory care unit, transitional care unit for short stays, large rehab and therapy area and multiple activity areas for families and visitors. A large 'town center' in the middle of the building will accommodate gatherings up to 200 people, and numerous balconies, patios and courtyards will take advantage of the site's close access to Lasting Legacy Park. A brand new program, Senior Day Services, or adult daycare, is being developed for the new facility, enabling seniors to live at home with their families and still receive care and participate in activities at the Legacy during the day. Thanks to a grant from the Wyoming State Land Investment Board (SLIB), The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center will have piped-in oxygen in each resident room and a number of rooms will be equipped with built-in patient lifts.

Updated: October 2015

This month, board members from the Campbell County Healthcare Foundation and some CCH employees toured the construction at The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center. Much of the exterior stonework is complete and glass is being installed in the Towne Center section at the main entrance. Curb and gutter and sidewalk work is being done in the northwest parking lot, service drive and the parking lot adjacent to Legacy Park. There’s lots of work going on inside too, with drywall starting to go up in October and paint, tile and flooring beginning in the resident wings in the next six to eight weeks. Construction should be complete by fall 2016, and the then there’s the state inspection and coordinating moving staff, equipment and most important, residents into the new facility. The goal is that everything will be moved in before the end of 2016. View more pictures on our Facebook album, We're Building a New Long-Term Care Facility.

And, don't forget that there is a webcam up so the public can watch the work at the Legacy construction site. Check it out at: http://www.truelook.com/clients/scullconstruction-webcam1/.

  • News Release: Campbell County Health to terminate Design Build Agreement for the Long Term Care Facility

Update: January 20, 2014

Approximately 1,100 geo-piers were installed in preparation for placement of the concrete for the foundation. Geo-piers are a method of soil stabilization which rams aggregate into the ground in a circle approximately 30 inches in diameter and 15 feet into the ground. This creates a compacted condition and friction on the surrounding soils.

And, approval has been given to begin the installation of the subgrade mechanical and electrical stub outs for utility installation and main level floor slabs. Subgrade mechanical/electrical is piping installed under the building slab in the soil. Stub outs are where this subgrade work comes out of the building and into the site.

Update: October 2013

Construction is slated to begin in October on a $39 million long-term care facility, located at 1000 South Douglas Highway in Gillette. The site features access to nearby Lasting Legacy Park and Highway 59, as well as shopping and restaurants. Along with the architectural firm Lantz Boggio, several community forums were held to gather input on the features of the new facility. Employees and residents were also part of the planning process, and several suggestions from those meetings were incorporated into the final design. U.S. Senator Mike Enzi was the keynote speaker at the Groundbreaking Ceremony on August 15, attended by over 200 guests. Look for the project to be completed in late 2014.

Pioneer Manor residents and guests from the public saw the latest drawings of what The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center will look like at a presentation on April 29, 2013 by Lantz-Boggio Architects. Below are a couple of renderings. See more photos and updates in the Facebook album. You can also learn about the progress of the construction here.
