Smith Village Starts Expansion  

Ground was broken in mid-October for a $22.3 million expansion to modernize the Johanson Wing at Smith Village, 2320 W.  113th Pl. The project will benefit residents in skilled nursing care and short-term stay rehab. 

The Johanson Wing was built in 1991. The new construction will convert double-occupancy rooms to create more private suites, and add a three-story extension that will house state-of-the-art therapy rooms and dining rooms.  

In 2007-08, the facility’s original site, first opened in 1924, was transformed to create the continuing care retirement community in the areaToday, Smith Village is home to 300 adults, age 62 and older, in independent and assisted-living, memory care, short-term stay and skilled nursing care. Residents benefit from healthcare and lifestyle programs.  

Participating in ground-breaking ceremony on Oct. 17 were Smith Village Executive Director Marti Jatis, President and CEO Of Smith Senior Living Kevin McGee, Cook County Commissioner John P. Daley, 19th Ward Ald. Matt O’Shea, Chicago Deputy Mayor/Economic and Neighborhood Development Samis Mayekar and Smith Village family member Cathi Hogan.
