RI County May Sell East Moline Nursing Home

Posted: Updated:


Lack of funds leads Rock Island County to consider releasing ownership of an East Moline nursing home.
More than 200 elderly people reside at Hope Creek Care Center. County officials say federal and state reimbursements are not enough to cover the cost of the home.
So now officials are looking into leasing or selling the facility. In the meantime, those who live at the nursing home are wondering what's going to happen to them.

"Very frustrated, for everybody concerned for all the family members not just me but everyone that has someone here," said Jeannie Putnam. "They're being taken care of and where else do we go."

County board members will vote on the matter at their November 19th meeting.
In the meantime, the nursing home officials are assuring residents everything will run as normal until an officials decision is made.
