Rumored closure of Anew Healthcare of Horton confirmed

(KAIR)--The rumors are confirmed, as Anew Healthcare of Horton is scheduled for closure.

That message was delivered in a social media post made to the long term care facility's official account, with the statement saying that all residents and family have been notified of the decision to close.

The post closes with words of thanks to the community, staff, residents and family members.

The social media post, made Tuesday afternoon, was the first public update provided by Anew Healthcare since January 24 regarding the status of the operation and its residents. That followed an evacuation of the facility's residents, in frigid temperatures January 15, due to what leadership called "technical difficulties" of the HVAC system.

Following the rehousing of residents at other local area Anew-owned facilities, Anew Healthcare of Horton posted to social media regarding the situation, and followed that January 15 post with the brief, January 24 update, but then offered no further follow-up, leading to speculation and rumor regarding the facility, rumor that has now been proven true through the company's official statement of the planned closure.

Anew has only owned the facility, formerly known as Mission Village Living Center, since May, 2023; and, among other facilities it owns in Kansas, Missouri, and Iowa, are those in Nortonville, Hiawatha, and Easton.
