Despite a revised resolution – in which developer Jeff Rhodes requested acknowledgement of an application to the Texas Health and Human Services Commission rather than an endorsement of a proposal to build a new nursing home facility in Uvalde – city councilmen on Tuesday once again tabled The Rhoman Group representative’s request.

Rhodes first approached council on April 10, when he requested an endorsement of a proposal to build a third Medicaid-certified nursing home in Uvalde. During the meeting, representatives from two local facilities proffered opposing viewpoints to city officials. Council opted not to act on the topic, and directed staff to look into whether a need for more care exists.

Rhodes said that over the past 12 months, Amistad Nursing and Rehabilitation Center and Uvalde Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center were, on average, 85 percent full.
