Nuvance to close Thompson House nursing home


RHINEBECK – Nuvance Health is closing its Thompson House skilled nursing facility in Rhinebeck.

The facility, opened in 1994, has 38 patients. A mid-May closing is anticipated, and all residents will be provided with new residences.
Staff members will also be transitioned to comparable open positions in the health system, hospital officials said.

“It has not been an easy decision,” said Richard Cleland, interim administrator. “We only reluctantly came to this decision based on the difficult landscape facing nursing home facilities.”

The pandemic has had substantial impacts on nursing home operations, which led to the decision to close, officials said.

The building will be turned over to Northern Dutchess Hospital as part of a long-term strategy to serve the aging community and meet their healthcare needs,” said Denise George, hospital president.
