Unsuccessful Attempt To Keep Dowagiac Nursing Home Open

An attempt to keep a Dowagiac nursing home open has not been successful.

Legal action was taken on behalf of several residents at the Dowagiac Nursing Home after the state of Michigan took emergency action to revoke the facility's license.

An attorney acting on behalf of several patients argued that he thought the facility's problems were "solvable".

Nonetheless, the judge refused to appoint a receiver, who would oversee operations, an appointment that would have allowed the facility to stay open.
