Tribe sells nursing home
CONCHO — The Cheyenne & Arapaho Tribes have sold the 67-bed Geary Community Nursing Home to Tony Maldonado and Vicki Myers for $400,000. Maldonado and Myers own First Choice Home Medical Inc. Maldonado has been in health care for 20 years and Myers has 31 years experience as a registered nurse.
“It is a passion of mine to provide services for Native Americans, specifically our elders,” Maldonado said. Maldonado is a member of the Kaw Nation and is part Cheyenne. Myers, co-founder of Russell Murray Hospice in El Reno, said, “We understand quality care. Our intent is to keep the Geary Community Nursing Home part of the community and provide a high level of care for the patients.”
Eddie Hamilton, governor of the Cheyenne & Arapaho Tribes, said the sale was meant to help staunch the tribes’ “financial bleeding,” while ensuring “the well-being of the facility’s residents, many of whom are tribal elders.”
