DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - A Dallas-based chain of nursing homes with over 100 locations in Texas and Louisiana has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Senior Care Centers, LLC is the largest nursing home operator in Texas. The company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection this week.

A statement from the company says it has significant debts, and it's also dealing with rent increases at many of its facilities - at the same time that federal agencies and insurance companies are cutting the amounts they will pay for nursing home care.

Senior Care Centers expects all of its facilities to keep operating without interruption and says all of its employees will continue to be paid throughout the bankruptcy process.
