Six months after acquiring Rock Glen Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Baltimore, Tryko Partners, LLC has assumed operational management for the 120-bed property at 10 North Rock Glen Road. The firm will immediately launch a $1 million upgrade and repositioning at the facility, which has been renamed Westgate Hills Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center.

According to Barry Munk, vice president of nursing home operations for Marquis Health Services, Tryko’s in-house healthcare division, the improvements will include physical renovations as well as service and program enhancements as the firm works to refocus the property toward short-term, sub-acute patient care. An expanded 1,500-square-foot therapy gym is among the plan highlights. Tryko Partners also will renovate family gathering areas, incorporate a fine dining program and update finishes throughout the Westgate Hills building to create a homelike environment.

“Providing quality of life is a key component of the Tryko/Marquis philosophy,” said Norman Rokeach, director of nursing home operations for Marquis Health Services. “For three generations, we have been catering to the needs of our patients and their families, with energy and excellence at the center of everything we do.”

Tryko Partners owns and manages more than 2,000 apartment units in Maryland, including several in Baltimore and its suburbs, and the company maintains a corporate office in the city.
