“We will be adding around 1,200 square feet of additional space for physical therapy and doubling the dining room and recreational area space, as well as installing new carpet, wall coverings and furnishings,” Vasquez said. “It’s been over 20 years since we’ve had an update and I love that we will be able to enhance the service to our long-term care residents with this new addition.”

    More and more, I think StGeorgeUtah.Com needs to hire local people who understand local issues, including local geography, which is often misportrayed in your articles.

    Do you know the difference between 400 East Street and 400th East Street?? 400th East would be 400 blocks east of the center of Panguitch. There is no such street, not even in a larger place like St. George or Salt Lake City. 400 East = 4th East, not 400th East!! It’s really a simple system, but your employees don’t seem to understand it.
