Friends and family gather May 28 for the grand opening of the Betty Fresh Rehab & Spa, 2655 Nebraska Ave., Palm Harbor.
PALM HARBOR – Family and friends gathered May 28 at St. Mark Village, 2655 Nebraska Ave., to celebrate the opening of the Betty Fresh Rehab & Spa.

Thirty-four years ago, Pastor James Fresh opened St. Mark Village in Palm Harbor as a ministry of St. Mark Lutheran Church in Dunedin. As a not-for-profit, continuing care retirement community, St. Mark Village has been home to thousands of seniors in independent living, assisted living, and nursing care.

A special addition was completed in 1989, when President George Bush came to dedicate the Michael Bilirakis Alzheimer’s Center.

As the wife of the founder of St. Mark Village, Betty Fresh has continued his legacy by supporting and nurturing her fellow residents and the staff at the Village.

The facility focuses on mind, body, and spirit health after a surgery, illness, or serious injury.

Doug and Carla Fresh, chief executive officer and director of sales and marketing respectively, are the second generation of the Fresh family to serve the residents and staff at St. Mark Village.

“The Betty Fresh Rehab & Spa is a state of the art rehab center where you go to work hard to get better, in a spa like environment,” said Doug Fresh. “Our goal is to give the care that your mother gave to you and that you would want for your own mother. My mother’s name on our new center is very fitting.”

The facility is open to the general public. For more information, call 785-2580.
