CUMBERLAND COUNTY TO DUMP NURSING HOME

At least one South Jersey county is getting out of the nursing home business.  The Press of Atlantic City reports that Cumberland County will be putting its own nursing home up for auction.  County officials tell the Press that the Cumberland Manor nursing home runs at a deficit of over $1 million annually and the county can no loner afford to keep it going.  An auction of the nursing home is scheduled for January 11th.
