Audit: Former Arkansas Center Residents Healthy and Safe in the Community

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Scores of developmentally disabled patients who were moved when the Alexander Human Development Center closed last year over concerns about their care are healthy and well served at new facilities, lawmakers heard today.
Of the 109 residents who were transferred when the Alexander center closed in June 2010, 59 are living in privately run facilities, 45 were transferred to other state facilities and one is living independently, according to a state audit presented to members of the Legislative Joint Auditing Committee.
Four others have died, according to the report.
