HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) – There are no more patients living at the Geriatric Authority of Holyoke as of Thursday night.

The GAH Board met to discuss the closure plan Thursday night and told 22News that the last patient was moved from the facility earlier in the day.

Authority Board Chairman Fred Glidden told 22News that the board met with Bankruptcy Attorney Lou Robin. Attorney Robin said he would file for Chapter eleven bankruptcy protection either that night or on Friday.

The Geriatric Authority of Holyoke is over two million dollars in debt, and has no way to come up with the funds.

Glidden told 22News the Geriatric Authority of Holyoke is closed, but adult daycare programs will continue for a few more months.

120 employees are losing their jobs. It’s uncertain how many are still working, or for how long.
