Care home takeover sought

The state is asking to take over Chase County Care and Rehabilitation Center in Cottonwood Falls and 14 other Kansas nursing homes whose owner cannot make an upcoming payroll.

Skyline Health Care of Wood Ridge, New Jersey, acquired the nursing homes in 2016.

The Department for Aging and Disability Services last week filed requests in 13 district courts asking to put the homes in receivership and turn management over to another company, Mission Health Care, which already operates 14 nursing homes in five states, including Kansas.
