Yanik provided the City of St. Peter and Benedictine Health System with project development and construction management services for the Benedictine Living Community of St. Peter, a skilled nursing and post acute care facility in St. Peter, MN. The 65,000 sq. foot facility is located on the River’s Edge Healthcare Campus, where Yanik served as the program manager for the City at the River’s Edge Hospital, assisting in the selection of the new site and preparing a master campus plan integrating a new Critical Access Hospital, complete senior campus including long term care, assisted living and independent living apartments, and two medical office buildings on the new 28-acre site.
The site was selected with the intention that the new hospital would serve as the cornerstone for future development. The Hospital opened in August 2004. The Benedictine Living Community is a direct result of the long-term planning process and the campus master plan. Planning, programming, and design began in June 2004, with the facility opening January 2007.
The 65,000 square foot long term care project is designed for 80 residents.
It consists of four wings each hold twenty residents in settings that allow for maximum flexibility of services or segregation by client type. All units are private and feature full shower with safety flooring.
The dietary and laundry services constructed with this facility support both the long term care facility, the attached River’s Edge Hospital and the Assisted Living Facility. They are sized to permit expansion of services for future senior’s programmatic needs.
Yanik assisted the City of St. Peter with multiple elements of this project including site selection, oversight during space programming, financing, project management, and construction management services during the various stages of each project, which were delivered on time and on budget.
