The latest news out of Mathison in Panama City
March 25, 2019
Dear Residents, Family Members and Friends,
We have finally arrived at our first day of welcoming residents home! Today is the day when we begin to see the culmination of all of the efforts on behalf of our contractors, associates, inspectors, board members, city leaders, Methodist Homes affiliates, and more, to restore Mathison after the devastation brought about by Hurricane Michael. Thank you for your patience as we made significant repairs to the community to bring back the delightful and beautiful home that our residents deserve.
Beginning today and over the next three weeks and we will welcome residents home. When those move-ins are completed, we will be very close to full! I want to thank our affiliated communities, namely Wesley Place on Honeysuckle in Dothan, Fair Haven in Birmingham, Wesley Gardens in Montgomery and Wesley Haven Villa in Pensacola, for their time, resources and excellent care of our Mathison friends during this period of time.
Please be aware that there is still some ongoing work. The Highway 390 expansion work continues and we must move our entrance from time to time. Be very careful when you come to the community, knowing that the current entrance may have moved since your last visit. Also, repairs to the Chapel are ongoing and expected to be completed in the coming month. In addition, there is some exterior painting and damaged gutter replacement that will be completed in April.
As everyone settles in, life at Mathison will begin to resemble our pre-hurricane lifestyle as activities ramp up and our associates get back into the groove of serving you. If you have questions, feel free to reach out to Mary Davis at 850-215-4663.
Thank you for your prayers and support. We are thrilled to be welcoming everyone back!
Very truly yours,
Christopher W. Tomlin
President & CEO
Methodist Homes of Alabama & Northwest Florida
