Wrong Business Appearing on Google Search + Map Results

I've verified my business page Advantage Living Center Wayne. When I search for this location I get the map for Advantage Living Center Harper Woods(page is also verified]. How do I correct this issue?

FIrst, you should know that it's against Google's guidelines to add a descriptor to a page's business name. Check out the quality guidelines - https://support.google.com/business/answer/3038177?hl=en&ref_topic=4540086

If the Wayne page was only recenly verified, it needs some time to build trust and authority with Google. Is it a brand new location?

Colan,
No it's not a brand new location or business. The name of the facility has recently changed. If you Google the old name Wayne Health & Rehab it appears with a map and the correct name.
Regarding descriptor, I'm not understanding.

Did you update the name of the existing listing in GMB, or did you create a new listing?
