Nursing home sets record straight

To the News Enterprise:

As administrator of Adirondack Tri-County Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, I want to eliminate some rumors about our financing. Let me explain that we do not receive any of the tax dollars the town of Johnsburg gives to Hudson Headwaters Health Network.

HHHN leases space from the nursing home at a nominal fee for their practice. Many people are under the assumption that we receive county subsidies from the three counties because of our name. We receive no tax dollars toward our operation. The facility continues to fight on a daily basis to survive with continual cuts in our Medicare and Medicaid rates. The surrounding communities continue to support us in many ways making it possible for us to continue to provide the best care possible for our residents.

Thank you for this support and be assured that we will continue this fight and plan to be here for many years to come.

Hal Payne

Administrator, Adirondack Tri-County Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, Inc.
