Mid-Atlantic Health Care Nursing Home Lawsuits

Our firm handles wrongful death and serious injury cases in Maryland against Mid-Atlantic. This page provides and overview of Mid-Atlantic and some information about cases against it.

Background

Mid-Atlantic Health Care is a nursing home chain that is growing quickly. There are currently 21 Mid-Atlantic facilities, with 3,900 beds, throughout Maryland and Pennsylvania. In Maryland, they have twelve centers in Cumberland, Berlin, Randallstown, Crownsville, Catonsville, Hagerstown, Frederick, White Plains, Mitchellville, and Oakland. The care at Mid-Atlantic centers includes rehabilitation services, skilled nursing services, long-term care, and hospice care.

Mid-Atlantic was founded in 2003, with its first facility on the Eastern Shore. In 2013, it became one of the first companies to have CMS Bundled Payment for Care Improvement Model program. The goal of this program is to provide coordinated care at the lowest cost to Medicare by bundling payments for post-acute providers.

This nursing home chain is growing fast. In 2015, Mid-Atlantic purchased four more nursing homes: Northampton Manor, Julia Manor, Devlin Manor and Moran Manor. With the exception of Julia Manor, these were distressed nursing homes that were probably purchased for a song.

Mid-Atlantic Health Care has big plans to convert a vacant downtown Baltimore building into a skilled nursing facility with 80 beds (Restore Health Baltimore). This is going to be next to the University of Maryland Medical Center, and is scheduled to open in 2017. This facility is placed in a location that will hopefully help keep Baltimore city residents from having to travel outside of the city to receive rehabilitation services.

The CEO of Mid-Atlantic Health Care, Dr. Scott Rifkin is earning praise. In 2016, he won the EY Entrepreneur of the Year award in the growth category, which recognizes entrepreneurs demonstrating excellence in innovation, financial performance, and personal commitment to the communities and their businesses.

Our nursing home lawyers worry a little about "Entrepreneur of the Year" type stuff. These large chains lean towards putting profits over people. Mid-Atlantic has some good nursing homes - Allegany Health Nursing and Rehabilitation and Restore Health come to mind - but it also has some 1-star facilities with inspection reports that are downright depressing. Moreover, look at the individual nursing homes listed below and look at how Medicare ranks staffing of these facilities. Mid-Atlantic is definitely not overspending on staff to take care of is residents.
