The Mercy Tiffin Hospital campus is growing with the addition of a new facility. On September 11, 2014, the Volunteers of America (VOA) invited the public to the official groundbreaking event for the new Tiffin Rehabilitation Center and Sojourn at Seneca. The groundbreaking event was held at 5:00 pm at Mercy Tiffin Hospital, located at 45 St. Lawrence Drive in Tiffin, Ohio. The groundbreaking featured several speakers, including hospital administrators, Mayor Aaron Montz, Mercy Tiffin President & CEO Lynn Detterman, VOA national President Mike King and other people associated with the project. Following the groundbreaking event, a reception was held on the first floor of the McMullen Conference Center. The $9 million project is being funded by the Volunteers of America, who operates Autumnwood Care Center in Tiffin.
The facility, set to open in the fall of 2015, is expected to employ 55 and will have two separate wings. In one wing, the structure is to house 20 transitional skilled nursing beds. In the other wing, 24 beds are to be available for seniors in need of short-term mental health services. The project estimates at around $22 million. The facility is to be operated by Sally St. Clair, the current Executive Director of the Volunteers of America Autumnwood Care Center, who will administer both Tiffin facilities.
