New Harmonie Healthcare is now operating under a different name after an Illinois-based company acquired it last week.

The senior nursing and rehabilitation center was renamed Premier Healthcare of New Harmony after the facility was bought out by Premier Healthcare Management. The company said that its current employees and team leaders will remain on staff, and assured that there would be no interruption in services for residents.

“It is a soft change, nothing dramatic,” said Executive Director Debbie Morgan.

As to why or how Premier Healthcare Management came to own the New Harmony nursing home, Morgan said she was “unable to discuss a decision made by the prior corporation.” She did note that discussion about the switch have been on-going for several months.

“Healthcare is ever changing and never static,” she said.

The company plans to install a sign in the front of the property with the new name and logo. A date has not been set for the sign’s installation.

Premier Healthcare Management is an Illinois-based company that was established in 2008. It currently manages 11 healthcare facilities in Indiana and Illinois.
