Matt Logue, director of the nursing home, projects that, the program, which would be provided by independent contractors, would generate $400,000 in additional revenue, enough to cover the cost of the services and return a net gain of $200,000. Mark Lehrman of New Hampshire Catholic Charities, which owns and operates the St. Francis Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in Laconia, said that "there is no unmet need for nursing homes in Belknap County" and by courting Medicare patients, the county nursing home would have "a negative impact on current providers."
