Menno Haven Rehabilitation Center Ground Breaking Ceremony
On Tuesday, September 12th, 2017 Menno Haven celebrated a major milestone for Project GENESIS with the Rehabilitation Center Ground Breaking Ceremony.
The Rehabilitation Center, unlike any in the region, will allow Menno Haven to aid in the recovery of individuals that experience illness after surgery or trauma. The Rehabilitation Center will cost 15.1 million dollars. Menno Haven has partnered with local banks, F&M Trust and Fulton Bank, to finance the project that is set to open at the end of 2018.

The Rehabilitation Center Ground Breaking Ceremony included remarks made by Board Members and Menno Haven’s CEO, Hugh Davis. Mr. Davis says “We have spent a great deal of effort in designing a modern Rehabilitation Center that will provide truly world-class service to both Menno Haven residents and the region at large. I think it will truly be an asset our community will be very proud of. A need for the Rehabilitation center is also fueled by the mission. As Davis states, “With all of the anticipated changes for the future of Menno Haven, our lamp is lit by our love for service and our devotion to Christ and his calling.”
The Rehabilitation Center project is only part of Project GENESIS, Menno Haven’s 5-year strategic plan that will include the investment of over $100M in their communities in Chambersburg. Project GENESIS will include the Rehabilitation Center, replacing the original 1964 nursing home, the addition of a 35,000 square ft. Resident Life Center, the addition of Memory Care Houses, and new independent living cottages. Menno Haven expects to break ground on the balance of these projects in 2018 and 2019.
