New Department of Health Analysis Shows That Repeal of Affordable Care Act Would Result in $38.8 Million in Cuts for 20 Nursing Homes in 1st Congressional District


Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that an analysis by the New York State Department of Health shows that 20 nursing homes in the 1st Congressional District would lose $38.8 million in funding if the Ryan/Collins/Faso healthcare repeal is passed, crippling their ability to provide critical services for seniors, hurting New York’s most vulnerable citizens and jeopardizing hundreds of jobs across the district.

The massive cuts in funding to nursing homes in Congressman Zeldin's District underscore the devastating impact the combination of the Collins/Faso Amendment and Paul Ryan health care replacement plan will have on New Yorkers across the state. The following nursing homes in the 1st District would be severely impacted with enormous cuts in their funding:

  • Medford Multicare Center for Living - $4,722,296 in cuts
  • Long Island State Veterans Home - $4,228,324 in cuts
  • The Hamptons Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing - $4,170,316 in cuts
  • Nesconset Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation - $3,311,092 in cuts
  • Mills Pond Nursing and Rehabilitation Center - $2,894,743 in cuts
  • Bellhaven Center For Rehabilitation and Nursing Care - $2,634,811 in cuts
  • St James Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center - $2,065,246 in cuts
  • Westhampton Care Center - $1,855,256 in cuts
  • Acadia Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation - $1,594,815 in cuts
  • Brookhaven Health Care Facility LLC – $1,546,015 in cuts
  • Suffolk Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing - $1,465,324 in cuts
  • Oak Hollow Nursing Center - $1,405,961 in cuts
  • San Simeon by the Sound Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation - $1,371,003 in cuts
  • Island Nursing and Rehab Center - $1,330,999 in cuts
  • Waters Edge at Port Jefferson for Rehabilitation and Nursing - $1,282,054 in cuts
  • Woodhaven Nursing Home - $1,228,808 in cuts
  • Lakeview Rehabilitation and Care Center - $994,507 in cuts
  • Oasis Rehabilitation and Nursing LLC - $576,987 in cuts
  • Jeffersons Ferry - $74,314 in cuts
  • Peconic Landing at Southold - $22,320 in cuts
  • District Total - $38,775,191 in cuts

"This reckless legislation slashes funding from nursing homes and facilities that provide care to seniors, jeopardizing the lives of our most vulnerable New Yorkers,” Governor Cuomo said. "These devastating cuts will cripple health care services in communities across New York, with $38.8 million in cuts to nursing homes in the 1st District alone. I urge New Yorkers to call their member of Congress and demand that they vote 'no' on this unconscionable legislation."

Congressmen Chris Collins and John Faso have introduced an amendment to the American Health Care Act that would ban federal reimbursement for state Medicaid funds for local governments outside of New York City, cutting Medicaid for these local governments by $2.3 billion. When added to the $4.6 billion cost of the ACHA over the next four years, the total cost to the State would rise to $6.9 billion. Across New York, 2.7 million New Yorkers would face substantial loss in their current health care coverage, while enormous cuts in funding will threaten the quality and availability of care that New Yorkers need and deserve.
