West Wind Village plans $4.7 million construction project


MORRIS, Minn. -- West Wind Village has received approval from the Minnesota Department of Health to complete a $4.7 million construction and renovation project beginning in spring 2014, the first major addition to the facility since the Rossberg Alzheimer's Unit was added in 1998.

When the year-long project is complete, the facility will be able to offer single rooms to every resident as well as some specialized facilities designed for the new demands of an aging population.
