A new 100,000 sq. foot nursing center in Milledgeville, Georgia, privately developed and managed by CorrectHealth LLP in  Atlanta, will commence with this project, a 280 bed geriatric care facility. Many of the patients will be elderly and medically fragile former state prisoners who have no families or homes to return to upon release. Other patients will be individuals with severe psychiatric and behavioral health conditions that are wards of the state and typically must be held in a restricted environment. Construction is expected to be complete next year, with an estimated opening date in February of 2016.
