Edenbridge Health will open a PACE Center at Skyland Town Center, becoming the first health care facility to locate at WC Smith’s new development in Southeast Washington.
PACE, which stand for The Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly, is a program, whose goal is to support older adults while they age in place at home. The PACE interdisciplinary team partners with PACE participants, their families and the community to manage and support the participant’s medical, therapeutic and social needs.
The nearly 15,000 square foot Skyland location will be Edenbridge’s first center in DC. Element Care, a nonprofit organization that operates several PACE programs in Massachusetts, will be the center’s lead operational partner. Amanda Davis, a licensed social worker who is experienced in working with elderly populations, is the center’s executive director.
Edenbridge expects to open the Skyland center in late 2022 and will serve DC residents living in Wards 7 and 8.
“We welcome Edenbridge to Skyland Town Center. This is an important addition to the neighborhood, as it will provide a vital health care service that has long been absent east of the Anacostia River,” said Chris Smith, Chairman and CEO of WC Smith.
Skyland Town Center is a mixed-use development located at the intersection of Alabama Avenue, Naylor Road and Good Hope Road SE, in Washington’s Ward 7. Rappaport and WC Smith, lead the retail and residential leasing and strategy, respectively.
