“This so-called protest would be amusing if it wasn’t so sad that Rockport Management was trying to take advantage of families and patients at this difficult time"



Senator Mike McGuire released the following statement regarding protests today by Rockport Management of Partnership Health Plan offices in Eureka.

“This so-called protest would be amusing if it wasn’t so sad that Rockport Management was trying to take advantage of families and patients at this difficult time,” Senator McGuire said. “There are real issues here – real people being impacted by the threat of these closures and I hope this billion dollar corporation stops the grandstanding and they start working with us to help the people of Humboldt.”

Rockport Healthcare Services is closing three of its Humboldt County skilled nursing facilities. Since the closures were proposed, Senator McGuire has been working with community members, families, patients, advocates, health care providers and staff of the impacted skilled nursing facilities and will continue his ongoing efforts to find long term options and solutions for skilled nursing facilities in Humboldt County.
