Fair Acres Geriatric Center Unveils Major Renovation

Delaware County Council was thrilled to join Fair Acres Director William D’Amico and his team, and local elected officials for a ribbon cutting to unveil major a renovation project at the Fair Acres Geriatric Center in Lima on March 21.

The $15 Million project included a full renovation of the top three floors of Building 8 of the facility.

“We are extremely proud of this renovation,” said Fair Acres Director William D’Amico. “It allows us to provide a beautiful, safe, and healthy environment for our residents and also our staff who provide exceptional care of the residents they serve each day.

The renovation included:

  • A total of 110 beds were renovated
  • New HVAC controls, call bells, and televisions were installed
  • The fire alarm and sprinkler system were upgraded
  • Card access controls were added
  • Construction upgrades included flooring, wainscoting, handrails, doors, plumbing and fixtures, electric, paint, and lighting
  • All rooms have brand-new furniture, pull curtains, and beds

The renovation also included new resident rooms, resident lounges, nurses’ stations, medical rooms, offices, and employee break rooms.

“This was no small undertaking,” said Council Member Christine Reuther. “It takes planning, strong leadership, a skilled workforce, and it takes money. A project of this magnitude doesn’t just happen. It takes leadership to understand that in order to be successful- we need to invest in the infrastructure and the people.”

Fair Acres is an extraordinary facility. It is the largest skilled nursing facility in Pennsylvania and can accommodate up to 774 residents at any given time.

Recently, they were named one of “America’s Best Nursing Homes for 2024” by Newsweek. Out of 12,273 nursing homes analyzed across the country, Newsweek selected the top 750 for recognition and Fair Acres ranked 26th among Pennsylvania nursing homes. Performance data, peer recommendations, the handling of COVID-19, the facility’s accreditations, and resident satisfaction were all taken into consideration.
