Villas of Holly Brook to Build in MortonMonday, April 7, 2014
Morton, IL - Today, the Morton Economic Development Council announced that the Villas of Holly Brook will be building a 50 unit assisted living facility in Morton. The new complex will be located on the corner of North Main and Highland Street and will create 30 new jobs.
"We heard from families in the area that they really wanted one of our facilities in Morton," said Owner Reggie Phillips. "We toured Morton and thought there really was a need."
The Villas of Holly Brook is a family-owned company with assisted living complexes in nine locations. They have three new locations planned including the one in Morton.
The new Morton facility will have two two-bedroom deluxe units, four two-bedroom units, and 44 one bedroom units. The complex will also include a movie theater, four seasons room, exercise room, activities room, and private dining room. Residents of Holly Brook receive three meals per day, all utilities with the exception of telephone service, transportation to and from the doctor, daily assistance with living needs, and regular outings via the unit van as a part of of their housing fee.
Phillips believes the Villas of Holly Brook provides something special to their residents. "We have a family concept and person-centered care," said Phillips. "We get to know residents, but we also get to know their families. That is what makes us unique."
