Fieldstone of DeWitt Senior Community Planned
WellSpire, a joint not-for-profit venture of WesleyLife and Genesis Health System, will redefine senior living opportunities with a proposed $30 million senior living community in DeWitt.
Fieldstone of DeWitt will feature nearly 100 residences, including assisted living, memory support, short-term rehabilitation and long-term care.
WellSpire currently owns and operates Westwing Place at Genesis Medical Center, DeWitt.
“The WellSpire partnership continues to propose and implement new senior living communities to benefit the senior population of the region,’’ said Glen Roebuck, Executive Director of Home, Outpatient and Senior Services, Genesis Health System. “Already under construction is The Summit in Bettendorf, which will provide the most comprehensive senior living opportunities in the region.
“The Fieldstone project is exciting for DeWitt, Clinton County, Northern Scott County and the entire region. Fieldstone will replace the highly respected Westwing, which has served the needs of the senior community with compassionate, quality care for decades.’’
Roebuck said Fieldstone at DeWitt will provide more options for seniors with the same standards and reputation of excellence of Westwing.
Westwing employees will have the opportunity to continue their careers as team members at Fieldstone of DeWitt. Additional staff will be needed, creating new health care jobs.
Fieldstone of DeWitt will cover approximately 95,000 square feet of the 15-acre site along Maynard Way in DeWitt.
The DeWitt Community Hospital Foundation has effectively launched a $5 million capital campaign to kick start the WellSpire not-for-profit project. Approximately $2 million has already been raised.
“We are honored to work with leaders and members of the DeWitt community on this critical project, and it is our hope that the new community will be a point of pride for the city and the region for generations to come,’’ said Chad Vogel, Vice President of Philanthropy for WesleyLife.’’
