Groundbreaking set for Dow Rummel Village expansion

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - A groundbreaking ceremony and capital campaign kickoff event is being planned at Dow Rummel Village on Tuesday, May
23 at 11:30 a.m. for 60 new memory care and assisted living apartments.

The proposed $28 million project will include 88,500 square feet of additions and 12,000 square feet of renovations on the current campus.

The goal of this project is to meet the growing need for memory care and assisted living services at Dow Rummel Village and the greater Sioux Falls community.

The first phase of the project will include the 30 memory care and assisted living apartments and is scheduled to be completed in Spring 2019. The second phase will expand the existing Main Street to include a gathering hall for the Chapel, a theatre, expanded salon, workshop, art and craft studio, coffee shop and golf experience.
This final phase is anticipated to be completed in Fall 2020.

“Dow Rummel has always been a leader in senior living in Sioux Falls,” Darla Van Rosendale, CEO at Dow Rummel Village said in a press release. “We were the first retirement community in Sioux Falls, then the first to build independent living apartments here and later the first to offer a Main Street and wellness Center with a pool. This project will continue that tradition of being a leader in the industry with some unique features in our memory care center and additional areas on our new Main Street like a golf simulator and outdoor putting green.”

The event is free and open to the public. The ceremony will begin at 11:30 a.m. with lunch and entertainment to follow. A complete schedule with more information is available at

Dow Rummel Village is a continuing care retirement community providing friendly, secure retirement living that meets the ever-changing needs of a diverse population in a community sustained by Christian spirit and service.
