Another nursing under state control will be closing in May

April 24, 2019

BROKEN BOW, Neb. (AP) — Another of the 21 nursing homes and assisted-living centers placed under state control last year will be closing.

Officials say more than 30 staffers will be losing their jobs when Broken Bow Care & Rehabilitation Center closes next month, and nearly two dozen residents are being relocated.

Station KNOP reports that the care center was notified in March that it would be closing in May after being in receivership for the past year. The state placed the 21 in receivership in March 2018, to be managed by Klaasmeyer & Associates. The state took the action after the facilities’ owner, Cottonwood Healthcare, also known as Skyline, notified the state about its financial crisis.
