Union Village, in Henderson, Nev., will be an integrated health community where seniors can both live and receive healthcare services, according to an article on the Healthcare Finance website.

It will include a 315-bed hospital, 200-bed nursing facility with long-term acute care, Alzheimer’s care, assisted living, independent senior living space, 350 market-rate condos, medical office buildings, retail that includes restaurants and theaters, a suite hotel and possibly a cancer center and children’s center.

One of the major components of the village will be a focus on wellness. The healthcare partners in the community will help residents remain as healthy as possible and avoid disease and major treatments whenever possible, the article said.

The senior living facility won’t have traditional offerings like a hair salon or business center — they will be part of the retail center. 

Instead of having one to three meals a day in the senior living facility, residents will be able to use part of their food allowance to dine out at the village’s restaurants.
