About the Kendal at Lexington Phase III Project

Over the next two years, the Kendal campus will evolve to include a newly renovated Borden Health Center and Webster Assisted Living Center, an expanded Anderson Dining room, and thirty more independent living cottages.

Borden and Webster will continue to serve the greater Rockbridge community as well as Kendal’s contract residents during the renovation. But, over the next two to three years, renovations to our health care centers will make life brighter and more homelike for their residents, more friendly to those who suffer from cognitive decline, and will provide our wonderful staff a quality workplace.

Borden Health Center

Kendal at Lexington is proud to serve the entire Lexington/Rockbridge community through the Borden Health Center, a top-rated skilled nursing facility. The Borden Center is the only not-for-profit skilled care nursing facility in the area and more than 80% of Borden’s admissions are from the general community (20% of residents are also Kendal residents). About 40% of those residing in the Borden Center are supported by Medicaid. With the new facility enhancements this renovation will make the Borden Center the most up-to-date skilled care facility in our region.

Webster Assisted Living

The Webster Center is designed for residents who need some assistance with meals, medications, dressing and other activities of daily living and who benefit from the supervision of staff 24 hours a day. Like the renovations in the Borden Health Center, Webster is receiving an upgrade to increase the neighborhood community feel, enhance access to natural light and beautiful gardens, and remove structural obstacles to model residential care.

Sunrise Ridge Cottages

Thirty new cottages are also coming to Kendal at Lexington. This will increase the number of residential living opportunities by 25%. Kendal at Lexington’s 120 existing independent living residences are 100% occupied, and a long waiting list of prospective residents has formed. The new cottages on Sunrise Ridge will be an attractive addition to the Lexington community and their setting has been carefully planned. As of January 1, 2018, before construction has commenced, twenty-two of the thirty planned cottages have already been reserved.
