Local Nursing Home Legislative Funding


Recently, Minnesota nursing homes began receiving new funding that was allocated by the legislature this year.


A $300 million nursing home funding package passed the House unanimously last session.

Over half of the funds, $173 million, went to direct payments to nursing homes.


Several local facilities received funding for the next two years.


In Red Wing, Bay View Nursing and Rehab Center will receive a total payment of $980,142 and St. Crispin Living Community will be getting a total of $482,057.


Mayo Clinic Health System in Lake City will receive $586,486 and St Elizabeths Medical Center in Wabasha, $626,651.


Inflation and increased operating costs, pay challenges with wages rising faster than what had been budgeted, and a workforce shortage have caused many nursing homes to operate at less than full capacity, and in some cases close.
