Trilogy Health Services Opens New Community in New Albany, Ohio

Smith's Mill Health Campus Combines Georgian Architecture with Culture of Compassion

​​​To say that Trilogy Health Services has been busy as of late would be an understatement. The provider of senior health and hospitality services is approaching the opening of their newest senior living community, Smith’s Mill Health Campus in New Albany, Ohio.

Located at 7320 Smiths Mill Road in New Albany, the architecture of Smith’s Mill reflects the Georgian Colonial style that the town is known for. Pristine columns, careful brickwork, and classical details make Smith’s Mill a picture-perfect addition to a community that shares Trilogy’s famous attention to detail. The campus will provide care across the spectrum of senior living, allowing it to cater to active, independent seniors, as well as those who may require more comprehensive assistance.

On its first floor, Smith’s Mill offers an Assisted Living neighborhood comprised of private and private-deluxe suites. Although suites come fully furnished, residents are encouraged to make their suite their own. In a short time, hallways that are currently lined with bare doors will be marked by holiday wreaths, and suites that are awaiting their occupants will be filled with artwork, pictures, and other touches unique to each senior who calls Smith’s Mill home. A Health Center is also located on the first floor, where the campus offers Skilled Nursing services, as well as a wide range of Post-Acute Healthcare services, including Rehabilitation, Outpatient Therapy, Respite and Adult Day services. In the Health Center, those who require more complex care and support will have access to highly skilled clinicians, as well as a team of expert therapists from Paragon Rehabilitation.

In addition to offering Assisted Living and Post-Acute Healthcare services, Smith’s Mill will also offer Memory Care services in its Legacy Lane. Here, staff members will be trained in Trilogy’s BFF Program. Inspired by the Best Friends™ Approach to Dementia Care developed by David Troxel and Virginia Bell, the BFF Program is based on the belief that what every person with dementia needs is a friend, a best friend. Through the BFF Program, caregivers in The Legacy learn each resident’s life story. Personal histories, favorite past times, likes and dislikes are then used to inform all aspects of care. More about Trilogy’s BFF Program can be learned by visiting

A quick elevator ride to the second floor transports residents to Smith Mill’s Independent Living community. Residents of the second floor have their own bistro, fitness center, movie theater, and even a community kitchen, which can be used for private parties or cooking classes. This approach to senior living underlines one of Trilogy’s principal beliefs: the only thing better than living the life you love is spending that life surrounded by friends.

Smith’s Mill will also offer activities designed to inspire, educate, and enrich the lives of those it serves. Visitors to Smith’s Mill may find residents tapping into their inner artist or chef, staying limber through specialized exercise programming, or enjoying handcrafted appetizers to the tune of live music during Smith Mill’s Happy Hour. Frequent outings to local attractions are also planned and promoted.

“At Trilogy, we say that our communities are places where family comes to live,” commented Leigh Ann Barney, Trilogy’s President and CEO. “Of course, when we say live, we mean taking advantage of everything that life has to offer. This is why we’re so passionate about serving delicious food, offering fun activities, and forging partnerships within the communities we call home. We also understand that you get the most out of life when you feel your best. Our clinical team is ready to provide exceptional care to every person they serve so that our residents can enjoy the lifestyle we’re proud to provide. This is how we exceed the expectations of our customers, and how we’ll make a positive impact in the community of New Albany.”

Members of the press are invited to Smith’s Mill’s VIP Open House on Thursday, December 5 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. During the event, attendees can take campus tours, enjoy hors d’oeuvres, and learn about everything Smith’s Mill has to offer.
