BEAVERTON — Maryville is marking its year-long golden anniversary by building for the future.
Founded in 1963 by the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon, the facility offers skilled nursing and memory care.
Groundbreaking was held May 12 for a Transitional Care Unit, featuring new space for 16 beds for adults who need short-term rehabilitation. Plans include enhancements to Maryville’s dining and therapy facilities.
In addition, a gift from the estate of Joseph Cholick will support the Maryville Therapy Courtyard. The courtyard is designed to improve patients’ endurance and balance through activities such as climbing stairs, navigating ramps and mastering walkways — all in a natural setting — to help them return to independent everyday living.
“Since Maryville was founded in 1963, we've supported our residents and their families at some of the most critical turning points in their lives,” says Kathleen Parry, the administrator. “Maryville treats the whole person - physically, spiritually and emotionally.”
