$1.6 million restored to Chenango nursing homes

NORWICH – A health and mental hygiene budget bill passed by the state’s legislature on Tuesday has restored $1.6 million to nursing homes in Chenango County.



Led by the Senate, the bill rejected a proposal included in the executive budget that would have changed the hospital reimbursement program. The legislature restored the funding, as well as $4.5 million across Senator Tom Libous’ 52nd Senatorial District, because nursing homes were being forced to use funding numbers from 1983, which are 25 years old.

The affected homes in Chenango County include: NYS Veteran’s home, Chase Memorial, Valley View, Pearl and Everett Gilmour and Chenango Memorial.
