Valley Care Masonic Center

On Sept. 24, the Committee on Masonic Homes approved a master plan for the construction of a continuing care retirement community on the 47 acres of land adjacent to the Valley Care Masonic Center in Sewickley, PA.

The Committee on Masonic Homes has given authorization to the architectural firm, Perkins Eastman, to proceed with the development of a more detailed design from which the community can be built. During the time of development, the plans will be presented to various governmental officials for approval.

The master plan, shown below, adds 60 assisted living accommodations and, depending on interest, up to 263 independent living options to the existing 128 nursing accommodations currently available at the beautiful Sewickley site. The plans also have potential for a wellness center, day care area, clinics, a pool, and a clubhouse, among other convenient features.

The assisted living area is expected to open for residents in the summer of 2001, and the independent living areas are expected to open in the late summer or early fall of 2002. Reservations for the independent living areas will be accepted as of January 2000; however, individuals interested in having their name placed on a Priority List for independent living accommodations may contact:
