May 11th, 2011

ELLISVILLE — A Tuesday morning groundbreaking in Ellisville kicked-off a long-awaited construction project that will create a more up-to-date and spacious rest home facility for seniors residing at Jones County Rest Home.

Members of the South Central Regional Medical Center’s Board of Trustees and Economic Development Agency of Jones County, elected officials, rest home employees and contractors were on hand for the groundbreaking ceremony for the new facility.  The new 44,000-square-foot nursing home is scheduled for completion in the fall of 2012. Once completed, the $10 million facility will look like SCRMC’s Comfort Care Nursing Center on West Drive in Laurel.  Chris Albritton Construction of Laurel is the contractor for the project and the project is expected to take about 18 months to complete
