Help Advocate for Our Gurwin Residents


Now is the Time for Our Gurwin Team to Contact Our Legislators

Less than 2 weeks to Final Budget — We Need Your Help!

Governor Kathy Hochul and other legislators are making their final decision on a budget for NY State that will have a great impact on Gurwin, Island Nursing and other NY nursing homes.

We’re asking you today to make your voice heard by completing the online advocacy letter provided through the link below, advocating for a 10.5% increase in Medicaid rates as well as a commitment to update nursing home Medicaid reimbursement rates at least every 5 years (currently, rates are based on 2007 costs).

Please join us TODAY in speaking up for appropriate nursing home funding so that the thousands of frail, elderly and medically complex older adults who depend on quality long-term-care facilities like Gurwin can continue to receive the care they deserve.
