New owner visits with Meadows staff, residents

NORFOLK - The new owner of The Meadows in Norfolk has been meeting with staff and residents, answering questions about the transition.  Monday, Russ Peterson of Nye Senior Services met with families and the community.  Peterson says normally when he and his wife acquire a facility, it is in need of updating and improvements, but that's not the case with The Meadows.  Peterson says he really doesn’t expect much change.  Jan Nixon, long-time administrator, has agreed to stay on. Peterson says that was part of the deal when he purchased The Meadows for J. Paul McIntosh.  The Petersons own six other senior campuses: five in eastern Nebraska and one in Wyoming.  Peterson says the official transition will take place September 1st.
