The Lacy-Grossville Nursing Home is in the final stages of planning a new nursing home, with the city of LaconIA hoping to be awarded $50 million in federal grants to build it.
The new facility, which is located at 498 South Laconius Road, is expected to open in 2019.
The facility will have 1,000 beds and will include 12 nursing homes, according to a news release.
Laconia is one of the fastest growing cities in the state and a prime location for nursing homes.
The community is home to the Laconiac School for Nursing, which offers a Bachelor of Nursing degree, and Laconico College, which provides an M.
Ed. in Nursing.
