New nursing facility opens near lake
Autumn At The Lake is the seventh facility owned and operated by privately held Autumn Health Care. The Newark-based corporation owns facilities in Newark, Somerset, Zanesville, Coshocton, Cambridge and Mount Vernon.
The 50-bed nursing and rehabilitation center includes a distinctive 70-foot fully functional lighthouse. It acts as a guiding beacon for those who need assistance, administrator Brandy Lawson said.
The spacious facility includes a Main Street complete with a dining room, barbershop/beauty salon, bank, library, movie theater/ chapel and cafe. There is also a play area for grandchildren. The semi-private rooms feature a floor to ceiling wall, partially dividing the room to maximize patient and family privacy. Each room is equipped with a shower.
Autumn At The Lake currently employs 35 and employment will likely reach 70 as it reaches full census. Private pay and Medicare/Medicaid patients are accepted. For more information, call (740) 246-5253.
