Denison Nursing Home Back Open Under New Ownership

Posted:

DENISON, TX -- A Denison nursing home has officially re-opened under new ownership.

The Royal Healthcare and Assisted Living Community held a grand opening and open house on Saturday. The 39-bed unit is located at North Armstrong and MLK.

The owner used to run similar facilities around the country, but now he's operating his own business with his wife in his hometown.

"We started the business because this was a landmark primarily for Denison. This facility has been here forever and a day just about and employed many people from Denison and the surrounding community and when it closed down the jobs left," says executive director Joe Dawson.

Dawson says the skilled nursing facility that had been in the building closed about a year ago, and they have completely renovated it including putting in new flooring.
