Back in May, I traveled to Cleveland to photograph the inaugural Open House for the new Mount St. Joseph Rehab Center building. After two years of construction, their new home in Euclid is now completed. Moreover, the facility is stunning. The Sisters of St. Joseph of St. Mark founded the nursing home in 1942 and continue to run it. Their dream of improving the quality of life for their short and long-term patients has become a reality: Mount St. Joseph is now not just a nursing home, but a state-of-the-art rehab facility. Below are just a few of the photos I took at the Open House. Congratulations to all of those involved in the rebuilding process and may the Sisters and staff continue to bring exceptional care to their residents for years to come!
All of the Sisters who have been a part of Mount St. Joseph throughout the years are commemorated in this beautiful fountain sculpture by the entrance.
The facility is massive, beautiful, and functional.
There are various outdoor areas for residents to enjoy.
The hair salon is fantastic - and decorated with photos of iconic movie stars.
The crowd mingled before the blessing ceremony in the chapel.
Mayor of Euclid, Bill Cervenik, gave opening remarks.
Bishop of Cleveland, Anthony Edward Pevec, offered his blessing and congratulations.
Bishop Pevec is on the right. I've know him since I was in 8th grade. He's a wonderful man.
The reception in the recreation room was lovely.
There was plenty of delicious food.
The music was soothing.
