Bay Vista Commons honored

Bay Vista Commons, a community of 72 affordable one and two-bedroom senior assisted living apartments, received a zero-deficiency designation following a Dec. 2013 survey from the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS).

“This is an important achievement for us,” said Martha & Mary CEO Chad Solvie, whose organization assumed management of the facility in June 2012. “The survey indicates our dedicated staff and the amenities at the facility are delivering the best possible care and quality of life for our residents.”

As Washington state’s first HUD subsidized, Medicaid-funded assisted living facility, Bay Vista Commons was constructed in 2006 in an innovative, pilot demonstration project partnership with the Bremerton Housing Authority (BHA) and DSHS to meet the growing need for senior housing options that span every income level, and allow seniors to “age in place.”

Located at 191 Russell Road, Bay Vista Commons provides a continuity of compassionate and quality care in an enriching community setting, and offers residents access to healthcare and other resources throughout Kitsap County.

Bay Vista Commons also received the National Association of Housing & Redevelopment Officials (NAHRO) Award of Excellence in Program Innovation for Affordable Housing in 2009.  Rice Fergus Miller of Bremerton was the architect on the project.

On the adjacent Bay Vista campus, the 83-acre former West Park site, BHA continues to develop hundreds of new housing opportunities, completing a decade-long vision of effective community partnerships and community planning, with the aim of changing lives and transforming generations.

Martha & Mary will provide care coordination at the new apartments adjacent to Bay Vista Commons.
