Port Townsend, Washington: 11 residents of the Victoria House assisted living facility face eviction due to a change of policy: the corporation managing the facility suddenly decided to stop accepting Medicaid. Outraged? Join our action group.
Eleven residents of the assisted-living facility were told individually [...] Thursday [November 1st] that they need to move by Jan. 31 because Assisted Living Concepts, a Wisconsin-based national public company traded on the New York Stock Exchange, is no longer accepting state Medicaid at the Port Townsend facility.
Laurie Bebo, CEO and President of Assisted Living Concepts (ALC) which runs the place, seems to think that that's just a fine business practice. A large chunk of the rest of the human race pretty much disagrees.
