Barnwell nursing homes in Brooklyn and Queens have been shuttered for at least the next two years, after two decades of steady growth.
The New York Post reported that the nursing homes at Bay Ridge and Riverside will be closing for good by 2019, while Barnwell is slated to be closing in 2019.
Both nursing homes are among the oldest in New York City.
Barnwell opened in 1984, Riverside in 1992, and Bay Ridge in 2002.
Bayside is in Brooklyn.
Riverside and Bayville have been struggling for years.
In February 2017, the borough declared a state of emergency after a spate of deaths at the nursing home.
More than 2,500 people died there in the five-year period, and officials said that in the first six months of 2019, there were nearly 2,300 confirmed and suspected cases of the coronavirus.
“We are extremely proud of our facility and the outstanding community we have,” Barnwell’s president, David Hargis, told the Post.
According to the Post, the nursing facilities are located in a neighborhood with a high concentration of low-income families and the elderly.
A public memorial service will be held at Barnwell in 2018, where the nursing facility will be moved to a new site.
At least four nursing homes were closed in the borough between January 2018 and March 2019.
