Holyoke Geriatric Authority Report

Holyoke Geriatric Authority Report

Published by masslive
The audit, which reviewed a two-and-a-half-year period ending in June, 2012, highlighted several missed opportunities for the GAH to grow its revenue. Missed opportunities included allowing its physical therapy license to expire, underutilizing GAH facilities, and underutilizing the authority's service vehicles. Each missed opportunity prevented the GAH from either providing additional money-earning services or collecting rent to help ensure its financial viability.

The audit also reveals GAH in 2012 received over $150,000 in state funding to which it may not be entitled. The Executive Office of Health and Human Services (HHS) provided the payments based on documentation that the GAH received $367,663 in appropriations from the City of Holyoke in Fiscal Years 2009 and 2010. Holyoke's City Treasurer contests that the money provided to the GAH were not appropriations, but money that GAH owed the City because the City was paying for GAH's portion of its employees and active retirees' premiums for health, dental, and life insurance.
