SPRING HILL, Tenn. (September 8, 2016) – Independent Healthcare Properties (IHP) and Morning Pointe Senior Living is set to break ground on a new campus in Spring Hill, making it the fourth senior community in Middle Tennessee and 16th in the state.

The first phase of the $25 million state-of-the-art senior campus in Maury County will create 200 construction jobs and another 65 permanent healthcare positions upon its opening in Spring 2017.

Morning Pointe of Spring Hill, conveniently located on Miles Johnson Parkway south of Duplex Road, will provide seniors in Maury and Williamson counties with assisted living and Alzheimer’s memory care services.

Situated on 10 acres, the new 58,000 square foot community will feature two single-story buildings with 73 spacious assisted living apartments. Twenty of the apartments will be located in The Lantern – a secure, dedicated area designed for residents with Alzheimer’s disease and other memory care disorders. The landscaped campus will offer high quality amenities, including fine dining areas, life enrichment programs and professional health and wellness services. Innovative and therapeutic programs such as SimpleC™ Companion services and the Meaningful Day™ program have been developed by the Morning Pointe team and incorporated into daily activities to ensure the highest quality of care for residents.

The second phase of the development will feature a 35,000 square foot, freestanding Lantern Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence with 44 specially designed apartments for Alzheimer’s and memory care residents.

“The continued expansion of Nashville into Maury and Williamson counties on I-65 offers an opportunity for Morning Pointe to serve additional aging seniors,” says Greg A. Vital, president and CEO of IHP and Morning Pointe. “With an increasing number of people living longer, Morning Pointe is working to meet the need, giving residents and their families options and choices in quality care and customer service.”

“Morning Pointe’s expansion is a positive contribution to Spring Hill’s development plans for the future,” says Spring Hill Mayor Rick Graham. “Spring Hill is rising, evolving beyond the scope of a commuter city, and so we welcome this expansion effort as we continue to cultivate a great city to live, work and retire.”

Morning Pointe has served seniors in Middle Tennessee for 15 years and is the region’s choice for assisted living and memory care in the area. In addition to its Spring Hill location, Morning Pointe operates three additional senior campuses in Brentwood, Columbia and Franklin.
