State Weighs Closure of Humboldt County Nursing Homes

The planned closure of 3 Humboldt nursing homes was mentioned on “The California Report” this morning. “The California Report” airs on KQED Public Radio, San Francisco’s NPR-member radio station.

According to the report,

“By the end of the day Wednesday, the state Department of Public Health should decide if three skilled nursing homes in Humboldt County have met state criteria to close. Some 190 frail and elderly residents might have to relocate, about 150 of them out of the county. The facilities are owned by Los Angeles-based Brius Healthcare Services, which owns five of the six nursing homes in the County and many more around the state.”
