Morning Pointe of Spring Hill will celebrate a holiday grand opening Dec. 14, from 4-7 p.m. at 1001 McCutcheon Creek Lane, located off Miles Johnson Parkway, south of Duplex Road. The event will begin with a formal ribbon cutting at 4:30 p.m., and will feature a Christmas Concert by Summit High School and a singing of songs from Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” by Columbia State Community College. Guests will witness a Live Nativity scene and a chance to meet Santa Claus. Heavy hors d’oeuvres will be served. 

Guest speakers and local dignitaries will be present at the grand opening event, including City of Spring Hill Mayor Rick Graham, Maury County Mayor Charlie Norman, executives from the Spring Hill Chamber of Commerce, leadership from Maury Regional Medical Center and TriStar Centennial Medical Center, and representatives from the Alzheimer’s Association and Morning Pointe leadership.

"The new assisted living and Alzheimer’s memory care community will be home to 73 spacious, home-style apartments featuring fine dining areas, life enrichment programs and professional health and wellness services. Twenty of the apartments will be located in The Lantern – a secure wing dedicated to the care of residents with Alzheimer’s and other memory care needs. 

"Innovative therapeutic programs developed by the Morning Pointe team, such as SimpleC Companion services, Cuddle Therapy and the Meaningful Day, are incorporated into daily activities to ensure the highest quality of care for residents. Morning Pointe’s community involvement and intergenerational programming give seniors limitless opportunities to remain active members of society while maintaining their independence and quality of life," officials said.

“The continued growth  of Nashville into Maury and Williamson Counties south of on I-65 offers an opportunity for Morning Pointe to serve additional aging seniors and new residents who call Middle Tennessee home,” said Greg A. Vital, president and CEO of Morning Pointe Senior Living.

“With an increasing number of people living longer, Morning Pointe is working to meet the need, giving residents and their families options and choices in quality care and customer service.”

“Morning Pointe’s expansion is a positive contribution to Spring Hill’s development plans for the future,” said Mayor Rick Graham. “Spring Hill is rising, evolving beyond the scope of a commuter city, and so we welcome this expansion effort as we continue to cultivate a great city to live, work and retire.”

Morning Pointe Senior Living has served seniors in Middle Tennessee for 15 years. In addition to the new Spring Hill location, Morning Pointe operates senior living communities in Brentwood, Columbia, Franklin and Tullahoma. The Chattanooga-based senior healthcare services company is the developer, owner and manager of 30 Morning Pointe Senior Living and The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Memory Care Center of Excellence communities in five southeastern states.
