Wesley Woods at New Albany – Opening mid 2017
A capital campaign for the first phase of construction is in progress. Phase one includes eight villa-style residences and our main three-story building with 70 independent retirement living apartments, 15 assisted living apartments, a secure 20 room memory care wing that surrounds a serene memory courtyard, and along with a 16 bed skilled-nursing wing and adult daycare.
Wesley Woods will open mid-2017. Future phases could add up to 24 additional villas. There are also plans for a Hospice Cottage on campus, nestled privately in the tranquil preserve.
"People living at their best includes a full continuum of care, focusing on mind, body and spirit. Our mission is to provide the highest quality of care, and we are excited to be part of the first class living that New Albany offers."

The Increasing Need for Continuing Care Communities
In 2015, The Columbus Foundation and Osteopathic Heritage Foundation commissioned a study from the Kirwan Institute at The Ohio State University to look at “Meeting the Challenges of an Aging Population with Success” in central Ohio.
Study findings indicated that there will be a 94% increase in Franklin County’s 65-and-over population by 2040 – from 115,706 seniors in 2010 to nearly 225,000 by year 2040. Methodist ElderCare is on the forefront of providing the needed services to this ever growing population in central Ohio.
The Office of Disability, Aging, and Long-Term Care for the US Department of Health and Human Services recently released a research analysis study that specifically noted the following about residents living in a Continuing Care Retirement Community:
- Live longer and are healthier
- Promote active lifestyles
- Support social involvement
- Ensure proper medical care
- Provide good nutrition
- Encourage overall wellness
- Benefit younger seniors
Methodist ElderCare Services is committed to serving the senior population in central Ohio through all stages of their retirement years with dignity and compassionate care.
