Lakeview NeuroRehabilitation preps for closure

The Associated Press

CONCORD — After months of scrutiny over allegations of abuse and neglect, an Effingham facility for people with brain injuries is preparing to close.

Officials at Lakeview NeuroRehabilitation Center are telling the facility's roughly 250 employees to prepare to be laid off on or before Aug. 1. Executive Director Patricia Reed says in a memo she expects the shutdown process to take longer, but the facility is required by law to notify employees of the closing timeline.

The Disability Rights Center raised complaints against Lakeview last fall and the state has conducted its own investigation and ordered a moratorium on sending new residents to Lakeview. New Hampshire's education commissioner also called for the closure of a school on the facility's grounds.

Reed says continued operation is "economically impossible."
