Additional Allegations Filed Against Elder Care Operator
Date:10/3/2008

filed today, Extendicare Health Services, Inc. was added as a defendant to Howard Steele, as the Personal Representative for the Estate of Lee Anne Steele v. Extendicare Homes, Inc.; Fir Lane Terrace Convalescent Center, Inc.; and Does 1 through 250, inclusive.

Extendicare Homes, Inc. is a subsidiary of Extendicare Health Services, Inc. and is the licensee of a number of long-term nursing facilities. In the United States, Extendicare Health Services, Inc., (EHSI), based in Milwaukee, Wisc., is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Canadian company Extendicare Real Estate Investment Trust (Extendicare REIT). The company (symbol: ALC) is listed on the New York Stock Exchange.

Extendicare Health Services, Inc. operates, according to its website, 191 senior care facilities in the United States with approximately 19,200 beds.

Extendicare's problems seem to range across the country. A July 27, 2008 article in the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported that Extendicare owns 26 nursing homes in Wisconsin. Twenty of them have been cited for at least one serious care violation in the past three years. The article also reports that in 2005, Extendicare paid $2.3 million to Wisconsin in a civil settlement over serious nursing home violations arising from the 2003 death of a resident. Its Sun Prairie home, Willows Nursing & Rehabilitation, was cited for poor care after two residents died. Willows paid $198,045 in state and federal fines; it also is on the federal list of the worst homes in the country.

Nevertheless, Extendicare is expanding in Washington. A July 12, 2007 article in the Journal of Business reported that it had received preliminary state approval to build a 120-bed facility on the South Hill in Spokane. The article said that the facility is expected to open in July 2009.
