Court Puts Dycora Nursing Homes in Receivership
On April 18, 2019, the San Joaquin County Superior Court placed three nursing homes operated by Dycora Transitional Health & Living into receivership: Dycora Transitional Health & Living – Community Care – Fresno, Dycora Transitional Health & Living – Stockton, and Dycora Transitional Health & Living – Shafter. Golden Living, a nursing home chain that owns the buildings, sought the receivership order based on representations that the facility operators were insolvent. Dycora leased the facilities from Golden Living in 2017.
Consumers who are considering nursing homes operated by Dycora should take its financial instability into account. According to the Department of Public Health, Dycora also operates the following skilled nursing facilities in California: Dycora Transitional Health – Clovis,
Dycora Transitional Health – Fowler, Dycora Transitional Health – Manchester, Dycora Transitional Health – Memory Care of Fresno, Dycora Transitional Health – Quail Lake, Dycora Transitional Health – San Jose, Dycora Transitional Health -Sanger, Golden Living Center – Galt, Golden Living Center – Portside, Golden Living Center – Reedley, Golden Living Center – Fresno, Merritt Manor Convalescent Hospital in Tulare, Porterville Convalescent Hospital, Twin Oaks Rehabilitation & Nursing Center in Tulare, and Kaweah Manor Convalescent Hospital in Visalia. Dycora is also operating the Twin Oaks Assisted Living Center in Tulare.
It appears the Department of Public Health allowed Dycora to take over operations of these facilities without ensuring that it has the money and capital to do so.
Dycora also operates nursing homes in Wisconsin. All eight of its facilities there were also put into court-ordered receiverships earlier in April 2019 due to its inability to pay its bills.
As Golden Living transitioned from a nursing home operator to a landlord in recent years, many residents of facilities it previously operated have suffered due to the financial collapses of the new operators. Several states have had to take over or close its former facilities in dire circumstances, including Pennsylvania, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota and other states.
