In January 2020, a fire destroyed the Elim Rehab and Care Center in Fargo, ND. Thankfully all residents and staff were safely evacuated and temporarily relocated in nearby facilities as Cassia went through the insurance, master planning and redevelopment process.

Through the master planning effort Cassia explored various options with Pope Design Group and ultimately decided to rebuild the center on the same campus. This option maintains a connection to the existing transitional care, therapy and assisted living community and amplifies shared amenities with a vibrant new town center.

The new state-of-the-art health care center features resident households with activity and living spaces that open up to enclosed outdoor walking paths, gardens and courtyards. The new town center features an atrium lobby, administrative space, two dining rooms, multi-purpose area as well as an efficient commercial kitchen and back of house zone.
