Local Senior Living Community Purchases Land

Local Senior Living Community Purchases Land

Hagerstown, MD: Diakon Lutheran Social Ministries has purchased property adjacent to The Village at Robinwood.
Originally having been known as Mt. Aetna Farms, the 222-acre tract was purchased by Diakon to expand potential options for the senior living community, located at 19800 Tranquility Circle. Diakon operates both The Village at Robinwood and Ravenwood Lutheran Village, 1183 Luther Drive, and is currently working with the state of Maryland to license the two campuses as a single Continuing Care Retirement Community.
"Although we have no immediate or specific plans for the site, we are reviewing a number of service-related options and believe this purchase to be in the best interest of long-term goals for our senior living services in Hagerstown," said Jodi Murphy, executive director of the two senior living communities.
"As we reviewed a number of longer-term development plans for these services, we came to understand that additional land would provide a broader and more flexible range of options over time," she added. "In addition, we believe this purchase reflects Diakon's long-term commitment to our presence within Washington County and beyond."
Providing senior living accommodations, health care, and a range of family and children's programs in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Delaware, Diakon serves people without regard to religious affiliation. Dating to 1868, the non-profit organization annually touches the lives of more than 80,000 persons through programs ranging from adoption and foster care and services for at-risk youths to family counseling and continuum-of-care senior living communities. More information about Diakon is available at www.diakon.org.
