Meeting Needs

A non-profit organization, Hollenbeck Palms has an endowment fund which is a dedicated and permanent source of funding. Each year, a portion of the interest from the endowment is used to fulfill Hollenbeck Palms’ mission, while the balance is used to grow and support future needs. Hollenbeck Palms does not have nor does it distribute any funds to shareholders or owners.

Our Skilled Nursing Center staff provides exemplary care to our residents who require around-the-clock attention. Time and again, this experienced staff combines compassion and kindness as they strive to provide the best individualized care to each Skilled Nursing Center resident. In recent years, the environment and building in which they’re housed has become outdated and in need of renovation and construction.

By constructing a new wing in our Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) and a separate state-of-the-art Memory Enhancement Center, Hollenbeck Palms will meet the needs of all its current residents and those yet to come. When completed, there will be 59 SNF and 24 memory care beds on Hollenbeck Palms’ campus for our residents who need around the clock care as well as those living with Alzheimer’s or dementia.

For our Skilled Nursing Facility, this campaign will:

  • Construct a new 10,000 square-foot, 27-bed Skilled Nursing Center to replace the current 1950's vintage West Wing.
  • Design rooms to incorporate added space for personal belongings.
  • Build larger bathrooms to accommodate walkers and wheelchairs.
  • Expand common space to encourage social interaction for patients and their families.
  • Ensure continuity of existing services and programs during construction.
  • Expand clinic facilities to meet patients' growing needs.
  • Implement electronic medical records system to provide more accurate and efficient health services and ensure successful outcomes.
  • Allow couples to stay together on the same campus, receiving different levels of care, at a time when one spouse needs extra attention.
  • Create enhanced work spaces to accommodate all staff.

For our Memory Enhancement Center, this campaign will:

  • Erect a two-story, 24-bed, secure assisted living and memory care building, complete with dementia-friendly devices, decorations and activities, to replace the existing center wing of Hensel Hall.
  • Provide 24-hour personnel to assist patients when the need arises.
  • Build bathrooms to accommodate walkers and wheelchairs.
  • Ensure continuity of existing services and programs during construction.
  • Allow couples to stay together on the same campus, receiving different levels of care, at a time when one spouse needs extra attention.
  • Create Green Space, an enclosed and secure wandering garden for our patients living with Alzheimer's and dementia.
  • Provide 20 additional parking spaces exclusively for the Skilled Nursing and Memory Enhancement wing of the campus.

Construction began in Spring of 2014 and will continue for approximately three more years.
