The Wyandot County Board of Commissioners received its monthly update on the Wyandot County Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center on Monday morning with a visit from Progressive Health Care Owner Dave Lucid, Finance Director Greg Johnson and nursing home Administrator Curtis O’Neal.
Payroll and holiday pay was up during the month of July, Johnson said. Along with the Independence Day holiday, additional staff was needed during the June 29 through July 1 power outage at the nursing home, he added.
The average number of residents per day in July was 72.4, including 23.2 private pay, 43.2 Medicaid and 5.9 Medicare patients.
The year-to-date expenditures is at about $2.8 million, with an additional unexpended balance of about $2.3 million. Johnson said the nursing home has spent 54.9 percent of its revenue for the year, with an additional 58.3 percent remaining.
Commissioner Joyce Morehart said it was a good report for her final week in office, as she will retire Sept. 1.
The board also passed a resolution to advertise again for sealed bids, which will be received by the board for a Tymochtee Township roads project until 2 p.m. Sept. 13. The project is part of the Small Communities Block Grant for 2011.
