Group Seeks To Reopen North Dakota Nursing Home

September 14, 2012, 6:59 AM

OSNABROCK, ND -

A community group is trying to raise money to reopen a shuttered nursing home in northeastern North Dakota.

The Sioux Falls, S.D.-based Good Samaritan Society closed the home in Osnabrock on July 21, citing financial problems due to a decreasing population, and problems in attracting and keeping staff. The facility was licensed for 31 beds but averaged only about two dozen residents between 2007 and 2010.

The center had only 18 residents last May when the closure was announced.

The Osnabrock Nursing Home advisory board has set an initial fundraising goal of $250,000 through donations and grants. The board expects to complete the transfer of property from the Good Samaritan Society by mid-October and reopen with 15 licensed beds by early 2013.
