The HistoryJust as Dr. MacKinlay saw Fulton County's need for a hospital to be built in the 1950s, a similar need arose to take care of the aged population in the early 1970s. Just before Christmas in 1976 FCMC opened its extended care wing of the hospital. Nineteen residents made FCMC their home permanently. Nine of the 19 residents came from the former Decker Nursing Home.
One year later, FCMC opened their intermediate care unit. FCMC could now offer three levels of care: acute care, intermediate care and skilled care. This would eventually make up the 57 beds that FCMC maintained until 2007 when they moved to their new facility and added an additional 10 beds for individuals needing long term care.
Today, FCMC Long Term Care is very much a vital part of the organization. Health care has dramatically changed since 1970 when the LTC unit was built; however the quality of care, coupled with the family-like atmosphere, has remained unchanged. In 2014 the FCMC nursing home received a four star rating from Medicare.gov.
