PROGRESS CONTINUES on Shiawassee County’s largest construction project in nearly 30 years at the new Pleasant View facility in Corunna. Pleasant View broke ground for the $23 million, 103,000-square-foot facility in June of 2016.

     The project is set to be completed by late 2017 and will replace the current facility near downtown Corunna, where it has been since 1953. Pleasant View provides long-term skilled nursing, memory, hospice and short-term rehabilitation care to more than 100 residents. The new facility will have separate wings for each of those three service areas. It is being built in a progressive manner by wing, so the first wing now has drywall completed, while contractors are just beginning interior wall construction, roughing-in, and electrical in the last wing.

     Exterior progress includes roofing, windows, and brick installation, along with the construction of the maintenance garage on the north side of the property. Interior wall framing, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, insulation, sprinkler systems, and drywall continue in the wings. Over the next month, work will continue in the first wing, with drywall finishing and prime painting beginning.

     Pleasant View, Shiawassee County’s Medical Care Facility, is owned and operated by Shiawassee County as a service to its residents, but is governed independently by a three-member state- and county-appointed health and human services board.
