A Topeka adult care facility that could shut down in less than two months is in a federal courtroom.
Last week, the state took away the license of Topeka Community Healthcare center due to failing to meet state and federal standards.
TCHC then filed a lawsuit seeking an emergency injunction blocking federal and state officials from cutting its funding.
This morning, both parties were in a federal courtroom as TCHC is fighting to keep its medicare and medicaid funding and preventing relocation of its 55 residents.
One former TCHC resident’s family member says they are happy their loved one is out of the facility.
“I want justice, I want justice for everyone in there,” said Betty Hunt, whose step mom was a resident at TCHC. “All these deficiencies have gone on for too long.”
