It may look like a Manor of the Plains is within a construction zone these days. It will all be worth it this fall when the renovation work is complete, and we have an updated community to enjoy.

“The current look is 23 years old, it’s tired and dated. It was simply time to renovate the healthcare and assisted living areas at Manor of the Plains,” said Bill Taylor, chief operating officer for Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America.

The $1.5 million renovation project includes major renovation work that starts at the main healthcare entrance. This area will get a new door, new vestibule and new flooring, and the updates will continue with new lighting and wall coverings throughout healthcare and the dining room. The salon will be completely remodeled and the nurse’s station will be turned into a living room area for residents to enjoy. The rooms also will get a facelift with new flooring and lighting, and the old textured ceilings will be scraped. Bathrooms will get new flooring and some new fixtures.

Assisted living changes include brightening up the hallways with new lighting, flooring and wall treatments. The dining room will change completely with a new set up, flooring and fixtures. Living room areas will be converted into comfortable spaces to meet, and the employee break room will become a more feasible area for staff.

“At Manor of the Plains, we’ve always set the standard for quality of care. The renovation will help us match that standard we have for care in our home for the residents. It’s a pretty exciting time here right now,” said Brad Radatz, regional director of operations.

The experts behind the renovation are general contractors Sutherland Builders, architect Vince Haines with Gravity Works and designers Kelley Hoffman and Adrianne Bellew with RDG Design.

“We’re very excited to have all these members on board and the team at Manor of the Plains is working hard to get it done. When you visit, you really feel the team effort behind the renovation. And it will better serve the community of Dodge City,” said Taylor.
