The lobby of the Healthcare Resort of Topeka would fool most people into thinking they had just checked into a nice spa or hotel. This air of hospitality and five-star amenities and service is exactly the concept the organization, which bills itself online as “the fusion of world-class healthcare and personalized hospitality,” aims to impart.

One of the first hints this isn’t your everyday rehabilitation and assisted living facility at 6202 S.W. 6th Ave. is the pub located just off the main lobby. Such amenities, said Bryan McDaniel, executive director, are what residents want today.

“One of the things that people in the nursing home discovered is that folks needing to rehab don’t want to go to a nursing home for rehab,” he said. “If they’re younger, they don’t want to go because it’s an aging population.”
