Sisters of St. Francis receive health-aid grant

The Sisters of St. Francis have received a $10,000 grant to purchase medical and therapeutic equipment for Rosary Care Center, a long-term care facility on their Sylvania campus.

The grant is from Support Our Aging Religious, and is the 10th grant the sisters have received from SOAR to buy electric hospital beds, lift chairs, a whirlpool, and related equipment to care for elderly and infirm clergy men and women.

The Rosary Care Center, which opened in 1975 on the grounds that include Lourdes College, was designed as a nursing facility for the elderly sisters and is managed by Franciscan Services Corp.

The four-story, 76-bed facility has expanded to include men and women from other religious communities in the Toledo area.
