Salude bringing 70 jobs to Suwanee

SUWANEE, Ga. -- Salude, a transitional rehabilitation facility in Suwanee, will open in July, bringing with it 70 new jobs.

The skilled nursing facility will officially begin taking patients on July 10, with a focus on patients who have been discharged from the hospital, but aren't well enough to go home. It will have an estimated economic impact of more than $16 million in Gwinnett County.

The 64-room, 46,610-square-foot facility is on 14.5 acres on Northolt Parkway. It will cater to patients with post-acute, short-term rehab needs, such as those recovering from cardiac, orthopedic and respiratory procedures.

Dr. Alan Wang, CEO of Salude, will also act as full-time physician on staff. There will two nurse practitioners on duty at all times.

Wang said the facility will serve a slightly younger patient population than a traditional skilled nursing facility, with an average patient age of around 50 to 85, though it will consider any adult patient.

Wang said he plans to find patients by partnering with local hospitals and health systems.

Salude is privately held under the umbrella of Golden Living, a Plano, Texas-based family of health-care companies. The Suwanee facility will use AlixaRx, another Golden Living affiliate, which produces automated machines that act as pharmacy services for skilled nursing centers.

It will also feature high-tech equipment such as the ALterG Anti--Gravity Treadmill.
