OSNABROCK, N.D. (AP) — Officials say a shuttered nursing home in northeastern North Dakota is slated to be open by spring.

The Sioux Falls, S.D.-based Good Samaritan Society closed the home in Osnabrock in July. Officials cited financial problems due to a decreasing population, and problems in attracting and keeping staff.

The Grand Forks Herald reports that a local advisory board formed immediately after the closing and began raising money to reopen the facility. Interim administrator Tim Seavey says a permanent administrator may be hired next month.

Funding to reopen the nursing home has come from area businesses.
