SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

A Sioux City retirement and nursing home is celebrating its new addition.

Sunrise Retirement Community cut the ribbon on a new health center and living space.

The nursing home side of the 77,000 square foot facility is broken up into neighborhoods.

Residents dine and do activities with the other people on their block which they say keeps them close.

"You have interaction with other people.  You get to know them. You worry about them if they're in the hospital, and you pray for them.  With 150 in a big dining room, you aren't aware of other people," said resident Joyce Beumler.

Sunrise officials expect the addition to make a big impact on the area, generating $112-million for the local economy.

"These kind of projects aren't one piece or two pieces, they're thousands of pieces," explained Larry Book, head of Sunrise's executive board.

The facility also includes 34 assisted living apartments, four dining rooms, four gardens, and six fireplaces.
