The project has been more than 12 months in the pipeline.
A decision is due this week on a proposed 62 bed nursing home in Laois.
The two storey facility will be located on Patrick's Street in Mountmellick, if given the green light.
It's been in the pipeline for over a year but delays, as a result of covid-19, meant further information requested by Laois County Council was only received last month.
The local authority will make a ruling on the application on Thursday.
