An opening date has been set for a $16 million southwest Cedar Rapids senior living complex.
Bob Sample, president of Stoney Point Meadows, said the 95-room assisted living and memory care facility under construction at 1900 Stoney Point Rd. SW will open April 1.
“We will actually be able to take possession of Stoney Point Meadows at the beginning of March, but we will need the month to bring in furnishings and equipment,” Sample said.
“The rain that we encountered in September caused us some delays, but we feel confident about the April 1 opening date.”
Stoney Point Meadows has opened an information center at 4338 16th Avenue SW.
The project, three years in the making, is the sixth developed in Cedar Rapids by Sample. He has put together eight health care communities in Iowa and Colorado over the past 30 years.
Sample said he has partnered with management company Augustana-Elim Care Services to provide the services at Stoney Point Meadows.
Stoney Point Meadows is a private company with local investors.
Sample, a pharmacist, owned Sample Pharmacies in Cedar Rapids for 25 years.
Stoney Point Meadows will employ between 60 and 80 people, including nurses, certified nursing assistants, food service and marketing staff.
