TOPEKA, KS--(Marketwired - June 11, 2015) - Construction on Kansas' latest transitional care development is now underway. Mainstreet® broke ground today on The Healthcare Resort of Topeka.

The project, which represents a total community investment of $16 million, is expected to bring 225 construction jobs and approximately 90 permanent jobs at the property itself. Construction should be complete by spring 2016.
