The COVID-19 pandemic has had a tremendous impact on all professions, with skilled nursing among those most adversely affected. Despite our best efforts to continue our Springs skilled nursing neighborhood at The Hacienda at the River, Watermark Retirement Communities has made the difficult decision to close our skilled nursing operations. This business decision will not impact operations of our award-winning assisted living and memory care neighborhoods at The Hacienda at the River.
While it is disappointing that we have been forced to close the nursing program, we are excited about our new direction we have planned for the Springs space that includes luxury independent living apartments, outpatient therapy and other integrative wellness-related services that will enhance our extraordinary campus. We will be revealing detailed plans for these new programs in the coming weeks.
The well-being of all residents at The Hacienda at the River remains our top priority. We remain committed to creating extraordinary and innovative communities where people thrive and The Hacienda at the River is among Watermark’s premier properties.
