Holyoke Geriatric Looking to Close

GERIATRIC AUTHORITY

HOLYOKE, Mass. (WGGB) – The Board of Directors for the troubled Holyoke Geriatric Authority has voted to contact the state about closing the facility.

Holyoke Mayor Alex Morse says he hasn’t given up trying to find a private company to take over the nursing home, which employs about 120 people and can house up to 80 residents. Morse says the state Department of Public Health has been notified and he’s working with state legislators about making sure patients find placement options.

Within the past month, Holyoke Geriatric was late on issuing paychecks and its Board of Directors Chairperson resigned.
