Wenatchee City Council Accepts Parkside Center Property Donation
October 24, 2009
Those seeking mental health care services in the Wenatchee Valley will soon have available a new centralized facility thanks to a charitable donation from the owners of the abandoned Parkside Healthcare Nursing Home. The Wenatchee City Council has formally accepted the property donation from Carl and Betty Campbell who own and operate several elder care facilities around the state including Colonial Vista Convalescent Center and Hearthstone Cottage in Wenatchee. The 3.5 million dollar building located on Monitor Street will eventually be leased out to The Chelan/Douglas Regional Support Network, The Women’s Resource Center and Columbia Valley Community Health. Steve Hair talked to an official with the Chelan/Douglas Regional Support Network about the donation and what it means for mental health in the Wenatchee area. The Regional Support Network and two other organizations expect to begin remodeling the buildings next spring. The Campbells opened the Parkside Healthcare nursing home in 1954. They own Triple-C Health care services which is the parent company for 180 assisted care facilities around the state.
