Pine View Meeting

In a decision made at a Jackson County Board meeting, officials are going to begin negotiations with the State of Wisconsin for a phase down, which would reduce the number of skilled nursing beds from about 140 beds to between 80 and 100 and add assisted living facilities.

The director of Pine View Nursing Home says the recommendations from the planning committee was what the board based their decision on, and she is pleased with the outcome.

The board of trustees will discuss how to proceed with the state for negotiations on resident admittance and relocation and potential staff cutbacks at their upcoming meeting on June 30.
