Some Bronx nursing homes in danger of closing
Even though the population of Bronx senior citizens is increasing, some nursing homes are reportedly in danger of closing.
According to a New York Post report, Bronx nursing homes have the highest vacancy rate in the city. A ?right-size? commission plans to issue recommendations for overhauling the system. The commission is expected to shut down several nursing homes, as well as some underused hospitals.
A report by the Continuing Care Leadership Coalition says 55 percent of nursing homes throughout New York are also losing state funding.
