Plans to construct a $71 million nursing home in Alabama are being supported by local lawmakers despite warnings that the facility could lose $26 million a year.
Those who backed the move are critical of the estimated losses.
“I don’t know what the real number is,” said Legislator Gary Domalewicz, chairman of the legislature’s Nursing Home Facilities Committee. He added: “I know one thing; it’s not going to be $26 million. That’s unbelievable.”
If the plans go ahead the nursing home will be large enough to accommodate 200 beds.
