Rosetta Assisted Living has built two memory care assisted living buildings at 5921 Road 60 in Pasco.
The new buildings are across the street from Mariposa Park and just down the road from Barbara McClintock STEM Elementary School.
The Pasco facility features 17 rooms, two sitting areas with televisions, as well as an activity room for crafts and games, in each building. There’s a spa area with a salon for haircuts and a jetted tub, and a laundry area. A kitchen serves up freshly-prepared food to residents.
Each room has its own toilet, sink and shower. Rooms come furnished with a bed, nightstand and dresser, though residents are welcome to bring their own furniture. Some rooms are larger and can accommodate couples.
Rosetta accepts Medicaid as soon as residents move in; there’s no waiting requirement.
The Pasco project cost about $2.4 million to build.
The Idaho-based Rosetta also operates facilities in Kennewick and Richland.
Kelly Morgan of Method Studio, which has offices in Idaho, was the architect.
Headwaters Construction Co. of Victor, Idaho, was the general contractor.
Beaverton-based Reser’s Fine Foods held a ribbon-cutting ceremony marking operations at its new Pasco processing plant on Sept. 21.
The new plant is more than twice the size of its old one at the Pasco Processing Center, which is now for sale.
The $120 million plant has 274,000 square feet and is used to transform potatoes, milk, butter and other ingredients into the company’s ready-to-eat mashed potato products. Construction has started on a 70,000-square-foot addition to accommodate production of its salad products and oven baked goods.
The plant employs about 250 with additional jobs planned in the coming year.
Tara W. Lund was the architect/engineer. Reser’s Construction LLC was the contractor.
