Kansas to take over 15 nursing homes

Kansas to take over 15 nursing homes”

KDADS has asked 13 district courts to allow the agency to take over the skilled nursing facilities after the operator of the facilities advised the state it will not be able to make an upcoming payroll, a KDADS news release stated today.

Mission Health Care - which operates 14 nursing homes in Kansas, Tennessee, Georgia, Minnesota and Wisconsin - has agreed to oversee the operation of the Kansas facilities.

Kansas officials are moving to protect more than 800 vulnerable residents of 15 financially troubled nursing homes across the state.

All of the care homes are operated under a variant of the name "Care and Rehabilitation Center" and are owned by a company called Skyline Health Care. Skyline is based in Wood Ridge, N.J., and acquired the Kansas facilities in 2016, according to KDADS.

About 845 residents live in the affected nursing homes.

Since Autumn Care was the facility that collected the most items, they were given a $500 check to donate to their choice of food pantry or shelter, Hughes said.

The food drive benefits more than BUCM because Hughes feels like it gives her residents a sense of objective, self-worth and helps them continue to contribute to the community, Hughes said.

"It is such a good cause and Dr. William Johanson is our medical director and he does a lot of work at Burke United Christian Ministries and we just wanted to support him as well", Hughes said.

Luxem brokered meetings with the managed care organizations that administer KanCare, the state's privatized Medicaid program, and with KDADS officials, who declined to approve the company's request for an emergency rate increase.

"They were $12 million in the hole", Luxem said. Last week, the state of Nebraska moved to take over 21 nursing homes across the state.

The Cottonwood Falls facility has 45 beds, according to information available online through the Kansas Health Care Association.

"I can't tell you much of anything", he said.

In addition to the local facilities, the situation affects three Care and Rehabilitation Centers in Edwardsville and one each in Cottonwood Falls, Downs, Eskridge, Lansing, Neodesha, Pittsburg, Springfield, Wakefield and Wilson.

They will, at least temporarily, be in capable hands with Mission Health Care, Luxem said. Kansas News Service stories and photos may be republished at no cost with proper attribution and a link back to the original post.
