Nearly 100 years after Sisters of St. Francis opened The Alverno in Clinton, they are transferring ownership to a Catholic health system that has managed the health care facility for the past five years.
The Alverno Healthcare Facility Board of Directors announced Jan. 14 an agreement to transfer ownership to Trinity Senior Living Communities (TSLC) of Livonia, Mich. The acquisition is expected to become effective March 1.
When the now 132-bed skilled nursing, rehabilitation and wellness center opened in 1914 it created the first long-term care facility in the Clinton region and the only local area facility to serve the aged and infirm until the mid-20th century.
TSLC, the nonprofit senior housing and nursing care organization which has managed The Alverno for five years, currently owns and manages 33 communities offering independent living, assisted living, memory care, long-term care and rehabilitation services for seniors. TSLC is a member of Trinity Health, the fourth-largest Catholic health system in the country. Mercy Medical Center, Clinton, is also a member of Trinity Health.
