buiding new nursing homes

A shortage of nursing home space across Florida will be helped by the addition of almost 1,000 more new beds.

  More than two dozen nursing home companies are suing the state for being passed up on building new homes in Florida. It could take the rest of the year to sort out winners and losers.

The court process could take six to nine months to play out, which would delay when patients could access the new beds. Check here for a list of the companies suing and the initial documents.
