Opening its doors in November of 2020, Orchards Healthcare Center could not have an official grand opening ribbon-cutting due to the pandemic that hit the entire world. Orchards Healthcare Center is a 129-unit campus comprised of 58 assisted living, 49 skilled nursing, and 20 memory care residences located in Rancho Mission Viejo, However, that didn’t stop their dedication to providing seniors with living options in the areas of assisted living, memory care, and 24-hour skilled nursing care since they have cared for over 100 individuals since their opening. “We have been honored to have met and cared for these individuals and their families as they have become part of our community and our family. We cherish every person and family member we’ve had the pleasure of serving,” said Kelly Conk, The Orchards Healthcare Center Administrator.
So, it was only fitting that a celebration would take place when the world started to open up. On November 11, 2021, The Orchards Healthcare Center hosted a private event celebrating their first anniversary and the grand opening ribbon cutting.
Attendees included leadership, staff, residents and their families, and community leaders from the area. Guests were seated in front of The Orchards Healthcare Center, where they enjoyed fine hors d’ oeuvres, drinks, and desserts.
San Juan Capistrano City Council member and Partner at The Orchards Healthcare Center Troy Bourne said, “The team at The Orchards Healthcare Center has much to celebrate today. We’re uniquely fortunate that we get to be a part of a business that, in a meaningful way, blesses people’s lives. There’s a saying, ‘we get the opportunity to do well, while we’re doing good,’ and here at The Orchards Healthcare Center, we do both beautifully.”
Tony Moiso, who is Chairman of Rancho Mission Viejo, said his wife is a resident at the health center and is very pleased with her care there, “We have had the opportunity to see first-hand how well they care for their residents – their care is as good as it gets.”
Moiso concluded by saying, “The Orchards has proven to be a valuable addition to our overall community here in Rancho Mission Viejo.”
