Gracedale's New Wing To Be Co-Ed

When Gracedale's new wing opens on Monday, it will be co-ed. Thirty-two beds. Administrator Dee Freeman told Northampton County Council that they've been turning people way. Former Human Services Director Ross Marcus claims the census is around 650.

Wait 'til they go co-ed!

But it's still unclear whether the nursing home has improved financially, despite making some positive strides. A 2% increase in reimbursements, which was supposed to occur in July, has not happened.

Maybe November. Maybe next year.

In the meantime, Lehigh County's Cedarbrook nursing home is $3.1 million in the red. And according to Council President John Cusick, Franklin County sold its nursing home yesterday.

Keep beating that horse, O'Hare. Who knows, maybe one day it will actually run.

Floors there are already co-ed. And the workers there deserve a raise. Try to do a nurses aide job or any job in nursing.
