Indiana Nursing Home Chain Plots Expansion
Miller’s Health Systems, a nursing home chain, is planning to break ground on a $2.5-$3 million construction project at its location in Logansport, Ind.
If all goes according to plan, the expansion would add 7,500 square feet onto the south side of the nursing home with space for therapy, exercise, and community activities, reports the Pharos-Tribune. The nursing home has capacity for around 100 to 150 residents.
Additionally, the building’s west side would get a new facade and workers would renovate a section of the first floor. The expansion is reportedly scheduled to finish in the spring of 2018.
