Sacred Heart Home is facility located on a large swath of forested land 5808 Queen's Chapel Road. Built in 1926, the facility is now used as a nursing home with the capacity to care for up to 100 residents. The property also contains a convent and priest's quarters.
The proposed site plan for the property calls for raising and rebuilding of both the convent and the nursing home. The convent will increase in size, however site plan proposes reducing the number of beds in the nursing home to 44, thereby reducing the square footage of the facility. The convent will remain in roughly the same location, while the nursing home will be relocated on the site. The project will occur in three phases: Phase I - demolition and rebuilding of the convent; Phase 2 - building of new nursing facility; Phase III - demolition of the existing nursing facility and construction of a breezeway connecting the convent to the new nursing home. The intent of the phasing is to keep the facility in operation throughout the process of construction.
The project is not yet approved, and will go before the Prince George's County Planning Board in Spring 2018. Once the application in submitted, a link to all project documents will be available on this page.
