    A word from the Administrator…

    This seems to have been an exceedingly long,

    bleak, cold and snowy winter. I know most of

    us will be thrilled when the first bright sunny

    warm days arrive. With the advent of spring

    and these long awaited sunny days comes re-

    newal. This year we will all have to collec-

    tively use this spirit of rebirth to look at the

    ways we provide care to our residents at Fair-

    view and become better at what we do in an

    extremely challenging environment that has

    been riddled with cuts in our reimbursement.

    Medicare is cutting back and covering fewer

    services, Medicaid has only increased our

    rates by one percent in five years, our hard

    working and dedicated employees have had

    their wages frozen and we continually ask the

    question of how can we do a better job with

    fewer resources and when will this end??

    Along with our dedicated staff, Fairview has

    been blessed with many individuals who have

    generously donated time and money to insure

    that these severe budget cuts do not negatively

    affect our mission. These individuals and cor-

    porations are vital to insure our reputation, the

    quality of our care and our five- star rating re-

    mains intact during these challenging eco-

    nomic times.

    Please continue to remember us in your

    prayers, in your generosity and your kind

    words as we struggle forward.

    James K. Malloy, Administrator
