According to Helena IR, a Townsend, Montana nursing home must close its doors after a mandate from the state Department of Health.
The department found “serious deficiencies” in a June 12 survey, and recent attempts by the home to comply with regulations “have been unsuccessful.”
Joni Carlson, chair of the health center’s board of directors, estimated the closure “could cost 30 to 50 jobs out of 90 at the health center, which includes a hospital.”
Some residents could reportedly find a new home at a facility in Helena, but the effects of the closure will cut deep.
“We have staff here that loves our patients and have known them most of their lives,” said Carlson, “It’s going to be very difficult for them and their families.”
