TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-- A federal court will not allow Topeka Community Healthcare Center to continue providing care for Medicare and Medicaid patients.

The operators of the nursing home asked a judge to stop the government from terminating the facility's certification for Medicare and Medicaid agreements.

The Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services revoked TCHC's license in July after it failed for several years to meet state and federal performance standards, according to officials.

More than 80 percent of the facility's revenue comes from Medicare or Medicaid.
