Financial troubles doom western Nebraska nursing home

January 14, 2019 GMT

SIDNEY, Neb. (AP) — A western Nebraska nursing home under state control because of financial problems will be closed.

The Sidney Sun-Telegraph reports that the staff members and 34 residents at Sidney Care and Rehabilitation Center were told last week of the state’s decision. It was one of 21 placed in receivership last March , to be managed by Klaasmeyer & Associates while a plan for the homes’ futures was prepared. The homes’ owner, Cottonwood Healthcare, also known as Skyline, notified the state about its financial crisis, so the state took action.


Ken Klaasmeyer says the Sidney home has been unable to become financially viable.
