(Neb)-Lantis Back In Charge At Crest View And Other Facilities

By: John Axtell Posted at: 06/13/2018 02:36 PM
CHADRON - Lantis Enterprises in Spearfish has taken back the operation of more than two dozen nursing homes and other health care facilities in 4 states, including the Crest View nursing home in Chadron.

        Lantis had signed a 20-year lease agreement in 2012 turning over management of the various facilities to Mission Healthcare, which changed its name to Welcov Health Care.

      Under the lease, Welcov assumed management of the Lantis skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies, and assisted living facilities in Nebraska, Iowa, Montana, and South Dakota while Lantis retained ownership of the real estate.

      The two privately-owned firms announced last week that Lantis was resuming management, but with no explanation given for the move.

       A press release quoted Lantis President Mary Ellen Lantis as saying they were "excited to welcome each facility back to our family of health care facilities" and calling the switch "an exciting new chapter."

      She said multiple state and federal approvals are needed, but that she's hopeful the transition will be completed in the coming months

       Lantis Enterprises started in the long-term care industry in 1972 in Kearney and moved it headquarters to Spearfish in 1986.
