new nursing homes

House, Senate Back Funding For Vets’ Nursing Home

Apr 18, 2017

Lawmakers appear to have agreed on money needed to get a long-awaited state veterans' nursing home underway.

 Nearly thirty companies will be competing to build new nursing homes in Florida. And with 1,700 applications for only about 500 new beds, competition will be fierce.

Florida just ended a 15-year moratorium on new nursing home construction.

Agency for Health Care Administration Secretary Elizabeth Dudek said this could be the last big round of new nursing homes because of a cap.
