Arbor Village Nursing & Rehabilitation Undergoes Multi-Million Dollar Transformation

Sapulpa, OK – Arbor Village Nursing and Rehabilitation located in Sapulpa, Oklahoma provides short-term post acute rehabilitation and long-term living arrangements for area seniors. Local couple, Scott and Lee Pilgrim, exercised their purchase option on Arbor Village in 2013 after leasing the building for several years. With a plan to completely transform the facility, plans were laid to substantially rehabilitate the current building and transform the operation. In May of 2014, the Pilgrims purchased Northside Nursing Home with plans to merge Northside with Arbor Village. The merger was complete in October of 2015 and now combines the clinical excellence, compassionate staff and unsurpassed leadership of both award-winning facilities. Ernie Johnson, III former owner and Administrator of Northside, continues to serve Sapulpa seniors at the helm of Arbor Village as Executive Director. Ernie and his team are committed to enhancing the lives of our staff and residents, making Arbor Village the premier nursing and rehabilitation facility in Sapulpa.

Arbor Village has gone through a massive multi-million dollar remodel and now features 122 beds in beautifully remodeled rooms. The remodel features spa showers, a state-of-the-art therapy room and restaurant style dining. Additional construction and landscaping are scheduled to take place on the exterior of the building and parking lots, further beautifying the area. Arbor Village is committed to supporting the Sapulpa community and currently employs nearly 100 local professionals. “We are thrilled to become an even more active part of the community and proudly employee professionals who are committed to providing patient-centered care and services,” said Ernie Johnson, III, Executive Director of Arbor Village.

In addition to long-term nursing care, the Arbor Village remodel features a Rapid Recovery Suites wing for patients who need nursing and rehabilitation on a more temporary basis. These Suites are completely segregated from the long term care area of the facility and serve patients who are recovering from surgery or illness for a variety of reasons, including neurological, orthopaedic, cardiac, respiratory and general debilities in a remarkable, hotel-like environment. Patients who need additional care to regain strength before returning home are admitted to the Rapid Recovery Suites directly from the hospital. Patients receive training to regain strength and independence, in order to transition back to their home and avoid reentering the hospital.

In 2015, Arbor Village won a National Quality Award – Bronze Commitment to Quality – from the American Health Care Association. Arbor Village is the ONLY Bronze award winner in the Tulsa area since 2008 and one of only two area facilities to have ever won. Residents and visitors can expect unsurpassed comprehensive care; an inviting remodeled facility, superior recreational activities, and the finest food. Tour Arbor Village Today!
