Nationwide Healthcare Services has completed the purchase of the former Milford Memorial hospital property from Bayhealth. The new property will be part of Milford Wellness Village.
Almost half the space in the Wellness Village is already committed. Polaris Health Care and Rehabilitation Center will occupy space on the first and second floors of the main building. La Red Health Center will move into the former Bayhealth cancer center to serve as a medical home. Kids Ink Child Care Center with 160 slots will move into the medical arts building, and the former hospital gym will be expanded into an elaborate outpatient rehab gym to be operated by Aquacare Physical Therapy. The openings of the businesses will take place on different dates throughout the fall of 2019.
Although Wellness Village is not part of the Bayhealth system, it will provide pre- and post-acute care needs for the hospital’s patients. A goal of the company is to discharge short-term patients healthy and active so they don’t have to return to a nursing home. Those discharged patients and Sussex County residents will be able to avail themselves of the “one stop” opportunities at the Milford Wellness Village.
Nationwide Healthcare Services is a leading healthcare provider with the philosophy to provide an all-encompassing continuum of care with exceptional delivery of service.
Bayhealth is central and southern Delaware’s largest healthcare system. Bayhealth is comprised of Bayhealth Hospital, Kent Campus, and Bayhealth Hospital, Sussex Campus, as well as the freestanding Emergency Department in Smyrna. Bayhealth is a technologically advanced not-for-profit healthcare system with more than 3,700 employees and a medical staff of more than 400 physicians.
