Henderson Health Care Services' long term care facility, built in 1960, had reached the end of its useful life.  The electrical and mechanical systems were failing and out of date.  Electrical and data line infrastructure was an issue due to the advancement of modern technology and equipment. The facility was not Americans with Disabilities Act compliant.  Resident bathrooms were too small to accommodate mechanical lifts for residents and  for staff to assist them.
