CEO Israel Sherman issued a statement saying, "As we have seen in recent days with the announcement of the closing of Newfane Hospital, health care generally, and specifically long-term care, faces significant challenges. We are very confident that we will emerge a much stronger company after these legal proceedings are concluded. It is our expectation that during this process that Patient Care, our employees, and our commitment to excellence will remain our top priority.”

Absolute Care says it is trying to positiion itself better financially.

Regular care will continue at all but the Orchard Park location, and Absolut Care says it received regulatory approval to close that facility.
