Virginia Lutheran Homes is expanding its Brandon Oaks Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.
The $7.9 million project will add a three-story building to the property.
The new facility will have 25 private care rooms, a gym, and a cafeteria.
Facility administrator Lucas Snipes estimates anywhere from 14 to 20 jobs will be added as a result of the expansion.
The building was designed using input from both patients and nurses.
The groundbreaking ceremony will take place at 11:30 a.m.
Both Mayor David Bowers and Senator John Edwards will speak at the event.
