UNDATED – Twenty-one nursing homes around Nebraska are now under state control after their owner couldn’t make payroll.

The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services said Friday that a Lancaster County judge Friday signed off on a plan putting the homes – spread out over 19 counties – in receivership.

HHS was forced to step in after they were informed by the owner of the nursing homes, Cottonwood Healthcare, that they would not be able to make payroll. HHS then worked with the Attorney General’s office to draft the receivership plan that was approved Friday afternoon. Cottonwood Healthcare is also known as Skyline.

The order approved Friday places Klaasmeyer and Associates as managers of the facilities while a long-term plan if drafted.

Cottonwood took over control of the former Golden Living facilities in 2016.
