Sioux Center Health representatives shared the organization's plans to grow a number of services in Sioux Center with the City Council this week.
Sioux Center Health CEO Cory Nelson discussed some goals that have risen out of the organization’s long-term planning: adding memory care and additional assisted living and nursing home care close to their existing Royale Meadows and Crown Pointe campus, plus additional medical clinic space near the current clinic. Further in the future, the organization is considering adding nearby independent living options.
Nelson indicated interest in undeveloped land owned by the City of Sioux Center near the Royale Meadows/Crown Pointe campus as a possible site for some of these additions.
“We wanted to get this in front of you because it moves onto some land that is ownership of the city, but it also shows the forward thinking that’s going on with Sioux Center Health,” Nelson said. “We know with the growth of our community and with the growth of our patient access, these needs are going to develop faster than we would be ready for if we don’t have a master plan like this in place.”
Sioux Center Development Director Dennis Dokter said this is good information for the council and city leaders as they plan for the future of that area and Sioux Center as a whole.
“As our community continues to grow, there are going to be needs for services, and it’s awesome that our local hospital is proactively planning for meeting those future needs,” Dokter said. “The services they’re talking about sound like they’ll be one of those amenities that make Sioux Center a great place to live in and move to.”
