Kansas Takes Over A Fort Scott Nursing Home

Updated:

Representatives from the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services say the state is taking over the Fort Scott Manor, a nursing home, and closing it.

Fort Scott Manor is located on Heylman Street in Fort Scott, KS.

Officials say their main concern is ensuring residents and patients get the care they need. They have given residents a 30 day notice of the facility closing and have asked other area nursing homes to help relocate the residents. The KS Dept. for Aging is hoping to make the move as smooth for the residents as possible.

The state agency did not give us a reason for the closing.  The Fort Scott Manor did not return our call.
