According to the “Courier,” Freeman Regional Health Services, located in Freeman, S.D., recently announced a $13 million upgrade that will impact the interior of its hospital, Freeman Medical Center and Oakview Terrace, a long-term care facility that also offers physical, occupational and speech therapies, restorative nursing care, activities, a dietary consultant, social services, beautician services and adult day services. Two dementia care units are also part of Oakview Terrace's offerings.

New construction on the southeast corner of the nursing home area (currently a fenced-in courtyard) will provide space for Oakview Terrace’s memory care department, with rooms around the perimeter of a large common area designed to make the space feel more home-like.

The project is slated to begin as early as this winter, and will continue in phases over the next 24-plus months.

FRHS is working with EAPC Architects Engineers and Journey Construction Professionals.
