KOCHVILLE TWP, MI — Officials with Comfort Care Senior Living have announced plans for a new $35 million development in Saginaw County.

The project, to consist of a rehabilitation facility, a pharmacy, senior living facility and central office, will be located on more than 15 acres at 4100 Tittabawassee Road, just west of Mackinaw Road in Kochville Township, according to a Comfort Care Senior Living news release. The joint venture is funded by approximately a dozen investors, most of whom are area physicians.

Comfort Care Senior Living is comprised of assisted living and memory care communities throughout the Great Lakes Bay Region. It strives to offer “premium services to address the emotional, intellectual, physical and social needs of the communitymembers” and to provide residents with “a comfortable environment and quality care with respect and compassion to enhance their lives.”

The first phase of the development is a more than $10 million short‐term rehabilitation facility to be called Great Lakes Rehab Center. A ground‐breaking ceremony is scheduled to take place at noon Friday, Sept. 23.

The first phase is expected to take 12 months to complete. The entire development is expected to be complete in 36 months.

Bay City‐based Global Development and Construction is the general contractor.

The rehabilitation facility will consist of 55 beds, private rooms with private restrooms and an 8,000-square-foot area devoted to rehabilitation, the release states. The new community also will feature café bistros, restaurant-style dining with gourmet cuisine, spa areas, an outdoor gazebo and fountains.

“When we decided to build a state-of-the-art rehab center in Saginaw, we knew it had to be something like none other in the area. We blended science, art, research and experience to execute one of the most ambitious senior care projects in the nation,” Hamza Sikander, managing director and co-owner of Comfort Care Senior Living and Great Lakes Rehab Center, said in a statement.

“Once completed, Great Lakes Rehab Center will be the largest rehab facility in Saginaw County. Given the high demand for these services in our area, we are excited to be able to fill this need through great support and affection from the community.”
