Butler County nursing home loses less money than expected

Monday, July 15, 2013, 12:01 a.m.

Sunnyview, Butler County's nursing home, lost less money than expected during the first five months of 2013, officials said.

The nursing home lost $320,000 through the end of May, when county officials expected to lose nearly $430,000. Nursing home officials said the home lost less than expected because of a high census, about 98 percent, and a state bonus program to take in certain patients led to an additional $188,000 Medicaid payment.

The county and the union representing Sunnyview workers are talking about employee concessions to save more money.
