OSNABROCK, ND -
Officials say a shuttered nursing home in northeastern North Dakota is slated to be open by spring.
The Sioux Falls-based Good Samaritan Society closed the home in Osnabrock in July. Officials cited financial problems due to a decreasing population, and problems in attracting and keeping staff.
A local advisory board formed immediately after the closing and began raising money to reopen the facility. Interim administrator Tim Seavey says a permanent administrator may be hired next month.
Funding to reopen the nursing home has come from area businesses.
