Hamilton County health facility with 100 workers closing

Arcadia Developmental Center in Hamilton County has been closed by the state, resulting in the transfer of all residents and the end of employment for 100 workers.

New Age Healthcare LLC, which oversees the center, notified the state of the closure Nov. 11, according to a letter posted online Friday by the Indiana Department of Workforce Development.

Arcadia said the state’s Division of Disability and Rehabilitative Services ordered an immediate transfer of the residents to other service providers on Nov. 11. The state recently cited the facility for violations regarding infection control and other problems.

The center, which was founded in 1998, began laying off employees Nov. 12 and expects to be finished by Dec. 31.

Almost 60 of the workers being eliminated are in nursing positions.
