(ARCO) – Long-term care at Lost Rivers Medical Center in Arco is coming to an end.
Administrators say 30 employees will be laid off and nine residents will have to find a new place to live. Officials say there’s simply not enough money to keep the care center running with a full staff and few patients.
The families of residents at the facility have been given a month to move out.
Those laid off by the closure are being provided resources to find new employment.
