A message to our neighbors from Pam Krecklow, Real Estate & Construction Manager, Albertina Kerr:


Well one more week down! By the end of May (yes that is next week) the residence will be water tight and Subacute will almost be.

We got our new fiberglass windows with the safety glass for the residence delivered today and Subacute's windows are in town pending site delivery. As soon as the framing gets complete they will be brought to site and installed.

Next week we are:

  • Having another crane on site on Tuesday to finish up lifting all the metal framing for the Subacute expansion
  • Finishing up Subacute's framing
  • Will be addressing siding and windows for the residence
  • And continuing rough in plumbing, electrical, and mechanical install for both buildings
  • I will also be doing some soil testing for the next phase of projects, this will include a trench being dug behind the Chapel and at the Louise

Sorry to say that most of the fun/exciting parts are completed. By end of next week we will be moving inside. The project will appear to go to a snail's pace as we begin all the interior work that isn't as visible. But so far we are still on schedule and just keep moving forward. Don't worry it will get exciting again when we start finishing up the site work, get the new driveways paved, and landscaping installed.

Since we got all the roof trusses this last week, we were able to open up some additional parking for Subacute guest parking. The guest parking is marked and the Gravel, Chapel, and Louise lots are still available as reflected on the parking plan.

Hope everyone has a fabulous Holiday weekend and we are back it on Tuesday.

Please let me know if there are any issues, questions, concerns in regards to the construction.

Construction on a new sub-acute care addition, and a new residential facility, began in March at Albertina Kerr Centers Gresham Campus, 722 NE 162nd Ave. Work on the project is expected to be completed in July.

The 6,000 square feet of new space, a new exercise area and parking lot improvements will allow the facility to serve approximately 25% more children and families.

Since 1997, Albertina Kerr Centers has operated a youth crisis psychiatric facility on its Gresham Campus.

The 24-bed facility has benefited over 4,000 children experiencing severe mental health challenges and their families over the past 15 years and is the only facility of its type in the State of Oregon.
