LIBERTY, Ohio (WKBN) – Employees at Campus Health Care in Liberty, who were expecting their paychecks on Tuesday, were told the money would not be coming as planned.
“We came to pick up our paychecks, and we were told that they’re here, but we’re not allowed to receive them because there’s money in the account,” said one Campus Health Care employee who did not want to be identified.
In August, WKBN First News reported that checks for employees at Campus Health and Warren’s Cedarcreek Healthcare Center had bounced. The healthcare centers are both owned by Tennessee-based company, New Beginnings Care.
An employee of Cedarcreek said they too were not paid on Tuesday.
WKBN put in calls to New Beginnings Care, but the phone lines were busy all day.
“The last time we had issues with paychecks bouncing was October, and it seemed to be going OK, and now today, we don’t even have a date when we’re getting our paychecks,” the employee said.
Despite problems with their paychecks, employees stayed to care for patients, saying that they were their main priority.
No one could say just how many patients were being cared for at Campus Health, but it is a small facility — with less than 100 employees — and it was not full on Tuesday.
