Orpea Polska has started the construction of the largest complex senior centre in Poland. It will be located in Poznan and will ultimately provide care for 400 people. The facility will operate exclusively on a commercial basis.
Senior centre in the city centre
The latest Orpea investment is being carried out in the centre of Poznan, at the junction of Szkolna and Podgorna streets. It is a land purchased in 2017 from the city for about PLN 40m. Previously, it housed the Strusia municipal hospital. The area where the investment will be located is a part of the urban-architectural complex of the Old Town and is entered into the register of monuments. It includes, among others, the remains of the city walls and the wing of the former monastery of the Carmelite Barefoot Sisters.
The complex will include, among others, a rehabilitation clinic, a residence providing 24-hour care, 47 apartments in the formula of assisted living and a day stay centre for seniors. Ultimately, the complex will have 400 places, including 166 places for elderly people who require 24-hour care and support in everyday life. The opening is planned for the turn of 2021 and 2022.
Orpea: Eight facilities in the near future
Poznan is the first investment carried out by Orpea as part of its strategy to develop premium services in the centres of the largest Polish cities. It is also the first investment that will include a nursing home, a rehabilitation clinic and apartments for independent seniors and a day stay centre within one complex.
Orpea has ambitious growth plans for the Polish market. In the nearest future, the largest Polish cities will have eight facilities under the name of Orpea Rezydencje and Clinea Kliniki. Three of them will be located in Warsaw and one in Piaseczno near Warsaw. There will also be a second residence in Wrocław, a nursing home in Krakow and a complex in Gdansk of similar size to the one in Poznan. We have written more about it here.
