Saginaw based Samaritas Senior Living managed to complete a three year multi-phase renovation costing about $7.5 million while keeping operations going.

Administrator Jodi Reymore says all accommodations are now private, with over 90 beds to handle long term, memory care and rehabilitation patients. Changes include a new state of the art therapy gym and landscaping. Steps taken during construction included building temporary walls to separate occupied spaces.

Samaritas, with locations across Michigan, recently took over the State St. site, which had operated as Luther Manor for about 50 years. There are approximately 100 employees for the facility, with a current patient count in the 60’s.
