Speaking to SNN last month, Marcum national health care practice leader Matthew Bavolack singled out his home state of Connecticut, asserting that despite relatively high occupancy of 88%, any further closures would present critical health care access issues for seniors in certain parts of the state.
“Eventually they’re going to have to be in a nursing home, and on the home care side, the definition of home care is skilled, intermittent care,” Bavolack said. “It’s not 24-hour supervision. That’s going to be a challenge.”
