YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – A $3.5 million expansion at the Heritage Manor Rehabilitation and Retirement Community in Youngstown was unveiled Nov. 19 along with the largest monetary gift to fund the project.
The addition of 12 private rooms at Heritage Manor, 517 Gypsy Lane, was led by the Schwebel Family Foundation. The new space will be named the Schwebel Family Foundation Wing in memory of Paul Schwebel.
“We’re going to be able to offer all private rooms with private bathrooms, putting us on the front edge of nursing facility design,” said Eric Murray, executive director of senior services.
Construction of the three-phase project began in May. The entire project is expected to be completed in 2023. The general contractor is the DeSalvo Construction Co. of Hubbard.
