A Warsaw-based nursing home operator plans to terminate its operating leases at eight Indiana locations—including one in Indianapolis—affecting nearly 700 employees.

In a series of notices to the Indiana Department of Workforce Development, Miller’s Health Systems Inc. includes its Miller’s Senior Living Community facility at 8400 Clearvista Place in Indianapolis. It employs 65 people at the facility.

The firm says that it expects the new operator of each facility “will hire most if not all of the MHS employees currently working” at those locations.

Miller’s attributes the move to “changing business terms and conditions” with the owner of the properties, Highgate Capital Investments/Aurora Health Network.

The company says its operating leases are set to be terminated on June 30 with the owner contracting and appointing a new operator the following day.

The change will affect employees at Miller’s facilities at the following locations:

—8400 Clearvista Place, Indianapolis (65 employees)

—1500 Grant St., Huntington (80 employees)

—787 N. Detroit St., LaGrange (67 employees)

—317 Blair Pike, Peru (60 employees)

—612 E. 11th St., Rushville (68 employees)

—505 W. Wolfe St., Sullivan (76 employees)

—300 Fairgrounds Road, Tipton (161 employees)

—300 N. Washington St., Wakarusa (114 employees)

The affected employees technically will be laid off as a result of the change, but Miller’s says it will offer assistance with the new operator in the re-hiring process for the employees.
