A ground breaking for the new Centre Care nursing home is slated for this fall, with a goal of opening the $39 million facility in Benner Township in November 2020.

The new nursing home will be about 137,000 square feet.

“Our architect keeps telling us this is a large building. It takes up about 15 acres of the plot of land,” said Andrew Naugle, administrator of Centre Crest, the current home in Bellefonte.

Rooms for residents like the one pictured will be 100-square-feet larger in the new building. Pictured from left are Centre Crest board members Richard Wisniewski; Larry Bickford; Bill Rockey; Carl Raup; Al Jones; Betsy Boyer Andrew Naugle, Centre Crest A

The Centre Crest Nursing Home in Bellefonte has announced plans to relocate and construct a new $39 million facility.

The facility will be located on the edge of State College, and is expected to be finished in 2020.

Betsy Boyer, the president of the Centre Crest Nursing Home board, said the 78-year-old building they’re in now is difficult to keep up.
