Editor, Daily News

The staff, residents, and patients at Quabbin Valley Healthcare would like to thank Representative Susannah M. Whipps for her support of the Nursing Home Investment Amendment #479 in its House FY 2020 budget recommendation. The final House budget recommendation includes an additional $35 million in funding for nursing home care, establishes a Nursing Facility Emergency Task Force to make recommendations on long term sustainability of the nursing facility sector and maintains the December 31, 2019 sunset of the EMAC Contribution. The FY 2020 Budget will now move to the Massachusetts Senate for its approval.
