With the new campus, Bethesda has transformed its care model from an institution to a smaller household concept.

In 1953, the Bethesda Heritage building opened to accommodate 125 skilled nursing residents. In 1979, Bethesda opened its second location, Pleasantview, along with Independent Living, Assisted Living, and memory care services. With the Heritage building failing in mechanical and electrical systems, Bethesda decided to completely replace its Heritage community and relocate the 125 beds to the Pleasantview Campus, thus creating a complete continuum of care.

Wold completed the design for the replacement of the Heritage building while transforming the existing older nursing home model to a smaller household setting. The site orchestration during construction was paramount in keeping all residents and staff safe during the addition and renovation. As a result, the campus received a renovated commercial kitchen, a new multi-story skilled care building, a new transitional care unit and therapy club suites, and a new main entry image and branding for the campus.
