March 6, 2017 - Shepherd Health and Cobalt Seniors have announced ‘Shepherd Living’ at Savannah Quarters, the 124-resident community in West Chatham County. The new offering includes spa-like living, they state.
The joint venture has purchased the property from Southwest Quadrant Development and is developing the community with United Community Bank, architectural firm Erdman, and contractor DeAngelis Diamond.
The project will create approximately 200 jobs throughout the construction period and, once completed, approximately 65 additional jobs for permanent operations. Shepherd will be hiring health and wellness experts, caregivers, and administrative and business staff, as well as workers in the food service industries and grounds maintenance.
Residents will enjoy a host of amenities, including gourmet farm-to-table food, fine wine storage, a full-service salon, a greenhouse and numerous gardening opportunities, private kitchens, animal therapy, extensive walking trails and landscaping throughout the large grounds, and a tavern to enjoy college football, according to Shepherd. The wellness lifestyle at Shepherd Living at Savannah Quarters also includes daily classes ranging from meditation and gentle yoga to aerobics and circuit training.
“This is the premier facility of its kind from St Augustine to Charleston to Atlanta, and Shepherd sets the bar for this new, thoughtful approach to senior living,” according to Pooler Mayor Mike Lamb. “There’s nothing that compares to it in this region, and we’re lucky to have them.”
The community will be managed by the brand’s operations arm, Shepherd Senior Living, and will be located directly across the street from Westbrook at Savannah Quarters. “We do considerable research when deciding where to locate our communities, and we are excited to be a part of Pooler and west-side Savannah,” said Christine Menedis, co-founder and CEO of Shepherd Health.
“This is going to be a dynamic, thriving addition to the region, and we look forward to providing a highly personalized resident experience, while integrating our distinctive blend of health and wellness offerings,” Menedis added.
The Shepherd company was co-founded by Christine Menedis and Naveen Trehan, defined as a ‘forward-thinking healthcare real estate development company’ that is based in Miami Beach, Florida. Cobalt Seniors is the senior living division of Cobalt Medical Partners, a healthcare real estate development and operations company based in Dallas, Texas. Cobalt focuses on providing exceptional patient care in state-of-the-art facilities that promote improved experiences and outcomes. The company has significant real estate development experience in numerous areas, with a core competency in inpatient rehabilitation hospitals.
