A news release cites increases are due to the continuing rising cost in operating expenses , but not limited to, food costs, utilities, and the approximate ten percent Medicare revenue cuts from the 2011 Federal sequestration bill and various other reductions by the Center for Medicare
and Medicaid Services.

Effective May 1st, daily room rates will change.

Eight dollar increases with the new rate for semi private room 134 dollars a day and for a private room, 139 dollars per day. A semi private room, rented as private, goes to ten dollars extra per day (up from five dollars) For the Residential Care Facility, a single apartment goes up by five dollars to 77 dollars per day; and for a double apartment, the rate is will be 154-dollars per day (up by19 dollars)

Administrator Donita Youtsey points out after the May 1st room rate increases, Sunnyviews' semi-private room rate still remains what she called significantly less than the current semi-private Medicaid daily room rate of $137.31. She also reports Sunnyview’s rates still remain some of the lowest in the area.

The nursing home board discussed the impending completion of the residential care facility addition and possible April date for occupancy for the eight additional apartments. The Board discussed at the Monday afternoon meeting the financial significance of the apartments and how the apartments are financially self-supporting and contribute financially to the nursing home operations. The Board approved the contractor’s application for payment of over 153 thousand dollars ($153,229.50) for work completed.
