Vetter Health Services announced in July of this year that they will be closing the Wauneta nursing home on June 30, 2012. They will continue “business as usual” until June 30, 2012, as long as we have sufficient staff to care for our residents, and enough residents to remain financially feasible to stay open that long.

There is talk blowing in the wind that our facility is closing sooner than June 30, 2012, and we want to set the record straight! This is not true!

Since the announcement, we have lost zero staff members and zero residents due to this issue!

We have had college bound aides leave for school, we had one resident pass away and another resident get better and go home. We’ve actually hired a few new people since then, too!

We want everyone to have the straight facts: We will remain open until June 30, 2012, or until we lose staff or residents to the point we cannot feasibly stay open any longer.

If and when that point is reached, we must legally give our remaining residents 60 days notice before actual closure to give them time to find new accommodations.

The town people of Wauneta are busy behind the scenes working for a solution so that hopefully the nursing home can remain open.

Vetter Health Services will no longer be the owner/operator after June 30, 2012, but there is a lot going on to try to save Wauneta’s nursing home.

There remains a definite need for this vital service, and the town people are backing the efforts to stay open 110 percent.

Please continue calling us and/or recommending us for new admissions!

Our facility continues to be a premier facility in this area and we know that proven continued census will certainly play a large part in any grant money applied for down the road!

If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to call us. We’ll be happy to assist you.


Warmest regards,

Lisa Kisinger, Administrator
