Valley Health Services announced its plans to build a new Senior Care Complex in Herkimer. It would replace the current 160-bed rehabilitation facility located on West German Street.
The development will cost $58 million, and is slated for a four year completion timeline.
Valley Health Systems has been paying close attention to the projected number of those hitting the age of 60 based on the New York State Office for the Aging and saw the need in our area.
Valley Health Systems will secure the funds for the project through private sources, grants and capital campaigns.
