The owner of more than 80 long-term care facilities across Indiana will commission an independent review of its operations.
American Senior Communities runs the facilities for Health & Hospital Corporation of Marion County. Those groups announced this week that 246 of their residents have died of COVID-19. That’s one-third of the state’s total deaths in long-term care facilities.
The Health & Hospital Corporation Board of Trustees said in a statement that the review will help them provide objective recommendations to address residents’ future needs.
Both organizations also said in a press release that all of their Marion County residents have been tested for COVID-19.
