A new medical complex dubbed Springdale Center has been approved to bring a variety of services to the 48-acre Trianna Park near 88th Avenue and Thunderbird Road.

The 43,181-square-foot project on about 12 acres of vacant land will include a behavioral health facility, dementia facility, senior living housing and medical offices, according to city documents.

The property allowed for attached single-family residential and senior living housing, but Peoria City Council approved a request to amend the allowable uses within the existing Trianna Park Planned Area Development Standards and Guidelines Report.

The applicant is Architecture All & Associates on behalf of Dr. Satinder Purewal.

The voluntary behavioral health facility will be a 24-hour short-term stay facility with 108 beds that focuses on intellectual or emotional behavior difficulties, inherited naturally or due to environment, according to documents.

The primary function of the facility is to treat individuals who require medical attention for mental, behavioral and stress related health concerns such as depression, anxiety and other diagnoses. Substance abuse related therapy, or detox, will be offered, but on a smaller scale, and will remain secondary to the primary use. This facility will not treat any type of violent or aggressive behavior, thus lockdown rooms are not required.

Through diagnostic procedures and personal counseling, doctors and staff will assess and evaluate each client’s strengths and individual needs, thus developing an integrated and holistic treatment plan incorporating psychiatric, medical, various non-medication therapeutic practices and on occasion substance abuse related therapy due to aggregate clientele needs.

The facility structure itself will be designed with wings consisting of overnight bedrooms and nursing stations. The facility will not focus on any type of violent or aggressive behavior. Clientele may range from 12 years of age and older who would on average stay for five to10 days.

The dementia facility will be a 24-hour long-term stay facility focusing on senior care, similar to general senior living and assisted care with a larger specific focus on seniors with dementia and a variety of conditions caused by Alzheimer’s disease, according to documents.

The facility structure itself will be designed as a typical assisted care center; including bedrooms, staff areas and common spaces. The voluntary facility’s clientele would typically range from 65 years of age and older and live at the center on a long-term base.
