EW Howell Construction Group completes 68,000 square foot St. Johnland assisted living facility in Kings Park, NY


EW Howell Construction Groupone of the region’s leading builders, announces the completion of the new St. Johnland Assisted Living at 393 Sunken Meadow Road in Kings Park, NY. The two-story, 68,000-square-foot facility on Long Island’s North Shore offers 80
residential units and 100 beds.

St. Johnland is Long Island’s premier provider of skilled nursing, with specialties in Alzheimer’s disease/dementia, traumatic brain injury rehabilitation, subacute care, and adult day care. The new assisted living center was built next to the existing St. Johnland Nursing Center on the 100-acre complex owned by the nonprofit organization.

“The new assisted living facility on the St. Johnland campus in Kings Park will meet the needs of families looking for independent living options for their loved ones, with the added security of caring and compassionate staff,” said said Kevin McKenna, a vice president at EW Howell.

The St. Johnland Assisted Living, designed by KDA Architects, was designed to have four wings of living units, rather than the long, linear design found in many care facilities. This facilitates the mobility of residents and caregivers and offers each resident the view of the lush nature that surrounds the rooms. Amenities include a large lobby with library space, a full-service kitchen and dining room with access to outdoor courtyards, and laundry facilities for residents. The second floor includes spaces for arts and cultural activities, as well as a wellness suite that hosts physiotherapy and fitness sessions. It’s also worth noting that 75% of residents will be eligible for Medicaid, which opens the facility up to people from all financial backgrounds.

“In addition to a wealth of amenities and activities, residents have the added benefit of the facility’s proximity to the organization’s nursing center and other services,” added Giuseppe Iuliucci d ‘EW Howell, who acted as project manager.
