COLD SPRING, KY (FOX19) -

Bringing more than 200 new skilled jobs to the area, Carespring Health Care Management will break ground on its new transitional care facility in Cold Spring Kentucky on Monday, Feb. 18.

Governor Steve Beshear, along with State Representative Dennis Keene, Judge-Executive Steve Pendery, other elected officials and business representatives will be in attendance. 

Opening during the fall of 2014, the $24 million project will include a 143-bed transitional care facility located on seven acres just off the AA Highway and U.S. 27 in Cold Spring. 

The new community will specialize in short term rehabilitative care and long term nursing care and will include a combination of private rooms and shared suites. 

The building will also house activity, dining and exercise facilities as well as a Starbucks Coffee Shop that is standard with all of Carespring's health care facilities. 

In keeping with the Carespring project name tradition, the new facility will be known as Cold Spring Transitional Care Center.

"We are very excited about this new facility.  Carespring is recognized for providing excellent communities and care to our residents and we will provide our Cold Spring residents with an exemplary experience, " said Barry Bortz, CEO Carespring Health Care Management.

Carespring acquired the beds for the Campbell County facility when the Lakeside Nursing Home closed in 2006.  That property is currently owned by Northern Kentucky University and is used for dormitories.

The Cold Spring facility will employ more than 200 full-time workers and house at least 143 residents in a brand new, state-of-the-art complex.
