Bill Could Ban Nursing Home Construction For Two Years

State lawmakers are negotiating a measure that would place a moratorium on the construction of new nursing homes except in certain cases. Supporters of the moratorium say too many nursing homes have been built in Indiana in recent years, bringing average occupancy down to 70 percent.

The proposed compromise would ban new construction for two years except in counties whose nursing homes are at 90-percent capacity or higher. The fight has set owners of existing homes against developers who have been expanding rapidly in anticipation of retiring Baby Boomers.
