Welsh Construction and Horty Elving broke ground on Monday for an expansion to Spring Valley Senior Living in Spring Valley. The expansion will add a post acute care wing and a new clinic space for Olmsted Medical Center to Spring Valley Senior Living's existing facility.

Spring Valley Senior Living provides skilled nursing home care; housing with services; Medicare-certified home care; and outpatient therapy services including physical, occupational, and speech therapy.

The new 10-unit post acute care wing will provide intensive care and rehabilitation to residents, as well as community members who are in transition from a hospital stay to a return home.

Olmsted Medical Center's new clinic will have 10 exam rooms, and will include x-ray capabilities. Olmsted Medical Center currently has 160 clinicians and 1,000 healthcare professionals serving at 17 locations in southeastern Minnesota.

Both the post acute care wing and Olmsted Medical Center's new clinic are expected to be completed before year's end.
