Mt. Ascutney Hospital to close nursing facility

Posted: Updated:
WINDSOR, Vt. -

A Windsor hospital says they're going to have to close their nursing facility.

Mount Ascutney Hospital says it will close that part of its services in September. The hospital says losing about half a million dollars in the sequester was a factor, as well as the 3 percent revenue growth cap set by the state.

There are about two dozen nursing facility residents who will be relocated. Closing the facility allows the hospital to relocate its inpatient rehab unit into the space.
