FAIRFIELD, CT – JULY 24, 2013 – Ludlowe Center for Health and Rehabilitation, a provider of post hospital rehabilitation and nursing care, recently announced the completion of a two-year massive renovation and 20,500 square foot addition project to their 118 Jefferson Street location in Fairfield.
 
A formal open house will take place in September, but the center officially opened its door to the community on Wednesday, July 24th for an event featuring International Speaker and Author,Dr. Bernie Siegel – as its featured speaker and a book signing opportunity. Also speaking at the event were Fairfield and Easton State Representative Tony Hwang, and Fairfield First Selectman Mike Tetreau
 
Ludlowe Center for Health & Rehabilitation has completed a four (4) story addition to relocate patient rooms, and one story addition for support areas, a new entrance, as well as expansion to the existing Physical, Speech and Occupational Therapies gymnasium. The total new construction of nearly 20,500 square feet increased the center by nearly 40 percent and took a little more than 24 months to complete in various phases. The construction created internal changes for patients, “which will allow Ludlowe to better serve the Greater Fairfield Community,” according to Lew Abramson, the center’s administrator.
 
“Previously, we had 10 private rooms and 67 double bedded rooms, for a total capacity of 144 beds for our patients and residents. After construction – we have 36 private rooms and 54 double bedded rooms. We remain at 144 total capacity, so it’s a huge increase in the size of our rooms and common areas for our patients and their families,” stated Abramson.
 
In addition, according to Abramson, all resident rooms have new finishes and furniture, as well as new large external patios for residents. Other enhancements include a new entrance and grand lobby. All administrative offices are new and centralized near the new entrance, as opposed to spread out in different areas of the existing facility. Furthermore, the facility nurse stations all received a facelift.

 
These renovations and expansion make Ludlowe Center the newest nursing & rehabilitation center in Fairfield County. Ludlowe Center is a sister facility of Cambridge Health and Rehabilitation Center, located a mile away on Easton Turnpike in Fairfield. Together, both centers employ nearly 500 full and part-time employees.
