Hallworth House Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, a nursing home center based in Rhode Island, announced plans to close in late August 2020 as a result of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) public health emergency. The center, a 57-bed nonprofit skilled nursing facility that opened in 1958, filed a plan with the Rhode Island Department of Health to stop operations.
According to Patricia Nolan, M.D., MPH, chair of the Hallworth House board, the facility had lost more than $1.3 million in the last two years while maintaining high standards of care, but the COVID-19 pandemic has caused significant problems in maintaining operations. The closure announcement comes amid growing concern about the financial stability of the state’s 85 long-term care facilities.
Hallworth House is a non-profit organization that provides skilled nursing, short-term care, long-term care, post-surgery rehabilitation, and a myriad of state-of-the-art therapy treatments. The organization is headquartered in Providence, Rhode Island.
