Jonathan Jank, President & CEO of the Seward County Chamber & Development Partnership (SCCDP), announced today that the SCCDP has been informed about the closing of two senior care facilities in Seward County that will take place on November 21, 2019 (Crestview Care Center in Milford and Utica Care Center in Utica; along with two others in the state of Nebraska). Jank stated, “Our organization is partnering with Senator Mark Kolterman’s office, local senior care providers, local community leaders, and state agencies to reach out and care for the needs of displaced workers and residents in Seward County.”
“This project will be a new priority for our organization. We will be collaborating with a number of state partners and community leaders to help our displaced workers and care facilities residents to make sure their needs are taken care of first,” Jank said. Today, part of the SCCDP team met with members from the Utica Commercial Club to discuss the impact of the closure on the Utica community. The SCCDP has been in contact with the Milford Chamber of Commerce and will work toward facilitating a coordinated community response soon.
