Earlier this year, it was announced that the Alden Network would enter into an agreement with Greenville Regional Hospital to lease, remodel, and continue service at Fair Oaks Nursing Home. 

According to Hospital President and CEO, Brian Nall, there are currently two agreements that are in play at this time.  The first agreement is the management agreement, which allows Alden to take over management of providing patient care at Fair Oaks.  This agreement went into effect July 15th.  Nall said from the outside, you may not notice much of a difference aside from a few people gathering information and establishing protocols and processes. 

The second agreement is the lease agreement.  Nall told WGEL this agreement takes a little longer to orchestrate; it is a long-term agreement where Alden will lease the space and the use of the facility, allowing them to move forward with construction and attracting new patients into the facility, post construction.

The Alden Network owns and operates several senior-living facilities in the Chicago area.
