Lakeside Meeting

There have been a lot of questions surrounding Lakeside Health and Rehabilitation Center in Chippewa Falls.

Last week, the Department of Health and Family Services announced that Lakeside's license is being revoked on Sunday June 20. That's when a new operator will be announced, and if for some reason one is not announced, officials say the state will take over operations until one is found.

On Thursday families, residents, and staff discussed these issues with state officials. There were both complaints and compliments and lots of questions, such as what started the investigation at Lakeside.

One official said it was from the complaints they received and the surveys done by state monitors.

She also said the complaints came from guardians, residents, and staff. Because many questions and concerns were raised about Lakeside, another meeting is scheduled next month.
