Merrick Manor will have better rooms, sleep center and more hospice rooms
Wednesday, June 05, 2013
Improvements at A.J. Merrick Manor over the next two years will include bigger and better rooms for all the residents, a new sleep center and two more hospice care rooms.
Parts of the manor will be torn down and rebuilt, and the rest will be renovated by the time the Building a Healthy Future project is finished in 2015.
Fremont Area Medical Center officials are billing improvements to the long-term care facility, which makes up roughly $8 million of an overall up to $42 million project, as renovated and new rooms “that feel like home – offering larger, more comfortable space with modern handicap accessible restroom facilities.”
Merrick Manor is FAMC’s skilled care facility with private and semiprivate rooms, 24-hour nursing care, and immediate access to FAMC hospital services.
