Nursing homes are in financial crisis: Our seniors deserve better

Nursing homes across New York State need your help. There are approximately 614 nursing homes in New York State. We say approximately because nursing homes have been closing at an increasing rate. If not closing, these facilities are forced to take vital beds offline, which means they are unavailable for people who need them. If you, your loved ones, or family members depend upon nursing home care in your community, this statistic should scare you. 

The end of 2022 marked a new milestone of which most people are unaware—but one that is vitally important to the health care system.
