Community open house today at the Nathaniel Witherell

Music, hors d’oeuvres, and refreshments will be featured at the Open House at Nathaniel Witherell on Tuesday, October 14, from 5 to 7 pm to celebrate the recently modernized short-term rehab and long-term skilled nursing center. Guests are invited to enjoy the entertainment and festivities as well as tour the facility.

The event is free and open to the public. The Nathaniel Witherell is owned and operated by the town of Greenwich and has been serving the community for 111 years.

Entertainment will include performances by the Melody Men, the men’s singing group of the Retired Men’s Association of Greenwich; the Grace Notes, the women’s a cappella group dedicated to bringing the joy of music to Greenwich and surrounding communities; and a girls string trio from Greenwich High School.

“This will be a wonderful opportunity for those who live and work in Greenwich and the surrounding towns to see first-hand the upgrades and renovations at the Witherell, which has long been a treasured local facility and a symbol of our community’s spirit and pride,” said David Ormsby, Chairman of the Friends of Nathaniel Witherell, Inc.

Support for the Witherell’s renovation project came from the Town of Greenwich and Project Renew, the capital campaign for organized by the Friends of the Nathaniel Witherell. The project has dramatically improved the infrastructure and environment at Nathaniel Witherell by increasing the number of private rooms from 26 to 64, eliminating 10 four-bedded rooms, and remodeling and redecorating 86 resident rooms.

Public space has been similarly enhanced, including a 4,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art Rehabilitation Center, new family reception areas, the modernization of three existing elevators and adding a fourth elevator, a new emergency generator, and other facility upgrades. The architectural and engineering design for Project Renew reflects a sensitivity to Nathaniel Witherell’s historic significance.
