SIDNEY, Neb. (AP) — Officials say four more of the 21 nursing homes and assisted living centers under state control are expected to close.

The state placed the 21 facilities in receivership last March, to be managed by Klaasmeyer & Associates. The state took the action after the homes’ owner, Cottonwood Healthcare, also known as Skyline, notified the state of its financial crisis.

The residents at Norfolk Care and Rehabilitation Center were told last week that Klaasmeyer & Associates would be seeking court permission to close the center. The same is expected for homes in Broken Bow, Grand Island and Schuyler.
