NATIONAL CHURCH RESIDENCES ACQUIRES LINCOLN LODGE, ASSISTED LIVING PROPERTY ON COLUMBUSÃ¢€™ WEST SIDE
COLUMBUS, Ohio – National Church Residences acquired Lincoln Lodge, a 50-unit licensed Assisted Living facility at 4959 Medfield Way, just off Broad Street on Columbus’ West Side for $2.8 million on February 28.
The acquisition expands National Church Residences’ presence in the West Side. It is within two miles of Lincoln Gardens, Hilltop Senior Village and Cherry Blossom, all National Church Residences properties. Doctors West Hospital is within one-quarter mile of Lincoln Lodge.
“Adding Lincoln Lodge to our West Side communities will allow us to serve that area even more effectively. We will integrate National Church Residences Home and Community Services and Aging at Home Medical Practice into the services at Lincoln Lodge. This will allow us to enhance the ability of our residents to age at home while being cost-effective,” said National Church Residences President & CEO Thomas W. Slemmer.
National Church Residences Home and Community Services offers a wide range of support to help seniors remain in their homes, including home health services, adult day services and hospice. The Aging at Home Medical Practice brings nurse practitioners into communities to provide primary care, helping residents to avoid hospitalizations and emergency room visits.
The Lincoln Lodge building, constructed in 1956, has a rich history as an upscale hotel and then moderate income senior housing. National Church Residences obtained the community from Chancellor Healthcare. Previously the community was owned by New Lincoln Ltd. and managed by Adcare.
National Church Residences is continuing to expand its comprehensive services to seniors throughout Central Ohio, providing both housing and health care. For example, National Church Residences Avondale, on Avery Road in Dublin, is a senior housing community with an array of health care services on site, including adult day, service coordination, meals, housekeeping services, home health care and even physician services.
National Church Residences is committed to excellence that transforms the lives of the people it serves. The not-for-profit organization is an innovative leader in integrating housing, health care and supportive services, serving seniors of all income levels and families. With 330 communities in 28 states and Puerto Rico, National Church Residences operates five continuing care retirement communities and is the nation’s largest not-for-profit developer and manager of affordable senior housing. It also operates supportive housing for the formerly homeIess. The National Church Residences model of person-centered care includes adult day health, assisted living, senior housing, skilled nursing homes, rehabilitation center, outpatient therapy, home health care and hospice.
