The vacant 116-bed Waco Healthcare Resort is currently being renovated.
This facility opened in 2015 for assisted living and skilled nursing. In 2018, the landlord and tenant caused the facility to be closed. The tenant closed the facility, which is on prime land for development. Its address on Crosslake Parkway in Legends Crossing is near Saltgrass Steak House, Chuy’s and P.F. Chang’s restaurants, plus hotels and retail.
SkyWalker Property Partners of North Texas saved the property, as well Zelevie Health from Utah. Together, they purchased the property with its 77,000 sq. feet and two-story tall grounds. They agreed to spend $500,000 “addressing deferred maintenance and upgrading the kitchens, dining areas, landscaping and mechanical systems,”Skywalker said this in a release. Zelevie Health is the name of this new facility, and it could begin accepting residents in the latter part of next year.
