Gracedale already spent its entire 2013 budget

County executive want to know why

Stoffa Gracedale Budget

EASTON, Pa. - Gracedale, Northampton County's nursing home, already has spent its entire $3.9 million annual budget for 2013, plus $330,000, according to County Executive John Stoffa.

Stoffa said that overspending may be reduced somewhat by revenue still coming in, but he is certain the nursing home is going to need more money from the county.

He said Gracedale's administration is asking for nearly $6 million in the 2014 county budget.

Stoffa is trying to determine how Gracedale got so far into the red.

He said the nursing home's administrators had been working carefully to stay within the budget, so he thinks they may have encountered unexpected expenses.
