STAMFORD - Stamford's mayor announced today the city wants to shut down a struggling nursing home.

Mayor David Martin says the Smith House Nursing Home is losing too much money.

He says the facility lost $6 million during the last fiscal year, and he says the numbers look even worse this year. 

Smith House is home to 108 patients and has 95 full-time and other part-time employees.

The state must approve the plan to shut down the facility.
