Lt. Governor warns another nursing home in trouble
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

PROVIDENCE, R.I. Another nursing home may be in trouble.

Lieutenant Governor Charles Fogarty says Mount St. Francis Health Center in Woonsocket owes about 4.5 million dollars in federal taxes. He has asked the state Health Department to consider placing the home in receivership.

Te home is owned by investors including Antonio Giordano. He's the majority owner of the Hillside Health Center that closed in July.

The revelation comes as a special legislative committee examines the nursing home situation in Rhode Island. Three centers have run into problems ranging from financial woes to the death of a patient.

Lawmakers have asked the state auditor general to investigate nursing homes that receive state money and to probe a branch of the Health Department.
