Powell will soon be home to a new assisted living and Alzheimer's care facility.
Thursday, Morning Pointe Assisted Living broke ground on its 23rd facility.
It's on Dannaher Drive, right by the North Knoxville Medical Center.
The $10-million dollar project will have 53 assisted living apartments and 20 more with a focus on Alzheimer's care
"Many folks have chosen to stay here in their golden years, and to provide assisted living and Alzheimer's care next to this medical campus are an important part of the long-term viability of this community," said Greg Vital, Morning Pointe President & CEO.
The construction over the next several months will create about 200 temporary jobs. When the facility opens later this year, it will employ about 75 people.
