Since 2011, when ORU sold the University Village retirement community to local businessmen, Matt Gawey and Blake Vail, the new owners have made the updating of the 38-acre campus a labor of love. “We are thrilled with the improvements we have been able to make over the last 5 years to make University Village truly a first class community.” said Gawey. University Village offers the full spectrum of retirement options from large, rental cottages to independent & assisted living apartments all the way to a dedicated skilled nursing and rehab center. Over the past five years, over $5 million has been spent on upgrades and adding new facilities. From a new rehab complex and skilled nursing wing to adding additional common areas and a new elevator, the community continues to evolve. The newest construction project is a new stone and iron fence on Lewis and the addition of a guard house staffed by night security. “University Village is in a great location and these continued improvements really make our community an elegant yet affordable retirement option for our residents and their families.” Vail added. Given the community’s continued success, it seems that many Tulsa seniors like what they see. For more information about University Village, visit www.uvrc.com.
