Ciena Healthcare Breaks Ground on Notting Hill of West Bloomfield in Michigan

Multi-Million Dollar Investment “Notting Hill of West Bloomfield” to Feature Short and Long-Term Care, Private Suites, Job Creation and a Land Donation

Online PR News – 16-September-2011 – – Ciena Healthcare, a leading manager and operator of skilled nursing and rehabilitation communities in Michigan and Connecticut, recently broke ground on a new skilled nursing community in West Bloomfield. “Notting Hill of West Bloomfield,” located at the intersection of Maple and Drake roads, will be a spacious, “green” facility designed and anticipated to achieve LEED Silver Certification, offering 80 short-term rehabilitation and long-term care suites with private baths in each.

Built at a cost of more than $10.5 million, and expected to create more than 150 full time and part time jobs, Notting Hill of West Bloomfield is scheduled to open in summer of 2012. The community will feature a living area designed to care for the needs of residents requiring a short-term rehabilitation stay and contain a separate living area designed to meet the needs of traditional, long-term care geriatric residents.

“We are very pleased to have the opportunity to provide high quality care in a state-of- the-art facility in West Bloomfield,” said Mohammad Qazi, President, Ciena Healthcare. “Notting Hill of West Bloomfield will have a homelike environment for all residents and include the latest safety features plus an easy to navigate floor plan for both residents and staff.”

The 71,000 sq. ft. facility also will feature a library, recreational area, lounge, an indoor therapy pool, a full service spa and salon, and manicured interior and exterior outdoor courtyards. Several dining venues and options will cater to the various needs of the residents, including 24-hour room service and a kosher menu created by an executive chef that will be on staff.

“We look forward to Ciena’s Notting Hill of West Bloomfield becoming a part of our community,” said Michele Economou Ureste, Township Supervisor, West Bloomfield Township. “Providing high quality care for both short- and long-term residents is a great asset to West Bloomfield, along with employment opportunities with a stable, Michigan-based company.”

Ciena Healthcare has donated 2.2 acres of land containing wetlands/woodlands to the West Bloomfield Township Sports Park adjacent to the Notting Hill of West Bloomfield site so it may remain preserved, and is committed to creating new wetlands. The land will allow for the construction of an overlook approximately 100 ft. into the wetlands and connect into the existing sports park path system for area residents to enjoy.

“Ciena Healthcare is very proud to donate this land to the residents of West Bloomfield, and allow this nature area to remain in tact,” added Qazi. “This will provide a tremendous learning source for all in West Bloomfield and keep a pristine area beautiful for generations to come.”
