The Maples Health and Rehabilitation
The Maples Health and Rehabilitation opened a $14 million, 100-bed skilled nursing center Sept. 17 at 610 W. Sunset St. Owned and developed by
of Christian Health Care, the 55,000-square-foot center replaced an East Primrose Street property leased from CoxHealth. Maples Administrator
said the move reassigns $30,000 in monthly rent toward mortgage payments. With 78 current residents, he said services provided by some 140 employees are split between rehabilitation and long-term care. Rehab patients typically return home within 30 days, and rates range from $175 to $225 per day. The Maples is among nine Christian Health Care centers in southwest Missouri, including properties in Lebanon, Hermitage and Nevada, Miller said. Hours: 8 a.m.–5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 24/7 for care. Phone: (417) 891-1700. Web:

Wang said he and Yuan grew up in northern China and both moved to America several years ago to study – Wang to New York and Yuan to Springfield. After graduating last summer from Missouri State University’s MBA program, chef Yuan called Wang, a personal banker for Chase in NYC, about opening a restaurant in Springfield. They borrowed $50,000 from family members and signed a three-year lease for $2,300 a month for Mr. Noodle. With seating for 48, the restaurant serves a variety of noodle dishes, from pad Thai to macaroni and cheese, Wang said. They employ another chef and three cashiers.
