Genesis Health System Takes Over Mercer County Hospital
Genesis Health System now owns the Mercer County Hospital and nursing home and will spend nearly 12 million dollars renovating the buildings from top to bottom.
Today they finalized the sale and renamed the facilities.
They'll now be known as the Genesis Medical Center Aledo and Genesis Senior Living Aledo. Genesis will be re-doing almost everything with bigger rooms, bigger departments and better technology.
It's all about giving patients and residents better care.
"We want to provide the best type of service we can for our residents because we owe it to them and they're somebody's parents and grandparents and we just want to provide the best we can," Administrator of Genesis Senior Living Aledo Myron Higgins said.
Most current facility has over 30 years without seeing any upgrades.
