Assisted living center now under new ownership

Staff writer

Marion Assisted Living center is now owned by Wichita-based Axiom Healthcare Services.

Axiom has six skilled nursing care and rehabilitation facilities in Derby, Olathe, Wichita, Conway Springs, and Louisville, Colorado.

Marion Assisted Living is the company’s third assisted living facility. The other two are in Derby and Wichita.

John Brand, executive director of Axiom, spent Monday at Marion Assisted Living center meeting the residents and their families.

The company had a long relationship with the center’s former owner, Brand said.

The 22-bed facility was formerly operated by Bob Brooks and local investors.

“When we came in and saw the place, it really had a good feeling to it,” Brand said. “It was obvious the employees genuinely care about the people who live here.”

Axiom has no plans to change anything or lay off existing employees, he said.

“We’ve got a good foundation and plan to keep building on what we have,” Brand said.
