Christian Horizons announces that it will acquire River Birch Senior Living, an assisted living community located in Springfield, IL effective February 1, 2020. In addition to 42 assisted living units, the faith-based, not-for-profit is purchasing 19 acres of land adjacent to the property as we envision future growth. The community will become River Birch Living. Christian Horizons will retain and integrate the River Birch team into our ministry.
In 2018, a Springfield, IL market study was conducted and showed promise for future growth. As a result, opportunities were evaluated to expand in that market. Christian Horizons has served the greater Springfield area since 1971 with diverse living options and is honored to continue in that commitment.
Embracing the same small house concept as the Garden Villas at Lewis Memorial Christian Village, River Birch offers 3 stand-alone small house buildings in a growing, residential living neighborhood that emphasizes personal dignity, autonomy, independence, privacy, and freedom of choice. This model of care is highly desired and well received in the market.
The addition of River Birch extends Christian Horizons living options in the Springfield, IL market and helps to further meet and respond to the growing need in the region for this unique living experience.
