White moved the following resolution seconded by Laylin.

WORK SESSION – Discussion on the financial condition of Country View Care Center.  Finance Director Susan Deaton said that Country View is doing worse than anticipated, showing a net loss of $565,114 through the end of September, a rate which if maintained through the fiscal year would result in a loss of $2.2 million, while the budget was anticipating a total fiscal year loss of $1,678,150.  She said this is due in part to an increase in spending on outside agencies to provide nursing services and to a drop in census below budgeted levels.

The Board discussed the difficulty of covering costs of services for the residents when state and federal funding isn’t available for some residents and is insufficient for others.  Some supervisors expressed concern that county taxpayers will have to pay for an increasingly large portion of resident care.  The Board discussed with Country View Administrator Dennis Coleman and Assistant Administrator Genevieve Shafer the difficulty in hiring sufficient staff, the comparative advantages to employees of public vs. private facilities, challenges faced at Country View like the widespread use of the Family and Medical Leave Act, and the efforts to correct the reimbursement rate from United Healthcare, which officials say has been underpaying Country View and owes money retroactively.  Magsamen said that Coleman was supposed to be working on a plan with Brighton Consultants to determine the optimum census for managing costs.  Coleman said Brighton says it’s hard to determine an ideal number, but his discussions with them continue.  Laylin said she has been in contact with them as well, and said they both should continue to press Brighton for a sustainable business model.  She said the county has a responsibility to the Country View residents and employees, but also to county taxpayers, and the county has to be aggressive in reducing losses.  White said care for the residents is also a moral responsibility, and people don’t complain about the millions that are spent for the jail population.

Dubuque County Supervisor Jay Wickham and Christine Kirsh, Administrator of Dubuque County’s Sunnycrest Manor, described how their facility is managed.  They have a board of trustees overseeing a hospital levy, and two separate boards for operations and finances.  They lowered a $2.8 million annual subsidy to $500,000.  Only Dubuque County residents are eligible to live there.  They looked into privatization, but no area facilities showed any interest in taking on their residents.  Magsamen directed Coleman to learn what he could from Dubuque County as part of his task to provide quality service at the lowest cost to the county, and said the Board expects a proposal from him.

                ANY REPORTS OR INFORMATION FROM THE BOARD

                On motion and vote the meeting adjourned.
