Group looks to move adult care home to Salisbury

SALISBURY — Kannon Creek Assisted Living of Kannapolis is looking to relocate to Salisbury.

Salisbury Opco LLC and Salisbury Propco Holdings LLC filed a certificate of need application with the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services in order to set a public hearing.

The hearing is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. April 9, in the Stanback Auditorium at the Rowan Public Library, 201 W. Fisher St. 

Martha Waller of the health department said the hearing will help the companies decide if the county is for or against the adult care facility by looking at the cost of the project and doing a competitive review to determine if there are similar projects in the area.

If approved, the new facility — The Landings of Salisbury — will have 106 beds. The project is expecting to cost $8.9 million and would be completed by October 2022.

Anyon, who cannot attend the public hearing, may file written comments about the proposal. Comments must be received by the Healthcare Planning and Certificate of Need Section no later than 5:30 p.m. April 1. 

Comments may be submitted as an attachment to an email if they are sent to DHSR.CON.Comments@dhhs.nc.gov. Comments may also be mailed to Healthcare Planning and Certificate of Need Section, Division of Health Service Regulation, 2704 Mail Service Center, Raleigh, N.C., 27699-2704.

For more information, contact Gregory F. Yakaboski, a project analyst with the state, at 919-855-3873 or greg.yakaboski@dhhs.nc.gov.

The Salisbury Post reached out to Kannon Creek Assisted Living for comment and did not receive a response before publication.
