Vets home operator files for bankruptcy

June 13, 2014

The firm contracted to operate the Lamun-Lusk-Sanchez State Veterans Home has filed for bankruptcy protection, but officials with the Texas Veterans Land Board, which owns the facility, promised operations will continue unabated.

Sears Methodist Retirement System, which operates Lamun-Lusk-Sanchez and two other veterans’ retirement homes in Texas, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection earlier this week in Dallas federal court. Despite that action, officials overseeing the facility were quick to reassure the public that normal operations will continue.

“What this means for the daily operation of the veterans’ home is absolutely nothing,” said Jim Suydam, press secretary for the Texas General Land Office. “It’s business as usual. The level of care delivered at the home will not be impacted in any way.”
