MercyOne Clinton announces plans to close senior care facility

CLINTON – The skilled and senior care facility formerly known as Mercy Living Center North will close later this summer, officials of MercyOne Clinton Medical Center announced.

MercyOne Skilled and Senior Care and The Alverno Health Care Facility, organizations led by Trinity Health Senior Living Communities, have decided that, instead of competing in the market and offering duplicate services they will serve the Clinton are through a single community facility, MercyOne said.

Residents, family members, representatives and staff were notified of this change at meetings last week. MercyOne will relocate its residents to area facilities with openings.

MercyOne Skilled and Senior Care is an 86-bed facility, originally opened in 1971 as Wyndcrest Nursing Home.
