The company that owns the Riverbend facility has approximately 5-10 locations in the state of Kansas, and a large number of others in multiple states across the country.

Legally, each location is structured as a separate corporate entity. What no doubt will happen with Riverbend, unless the federal government grants immunity to COVID-19 providers, is that they will declare bankruptcy. All the other locations in KS and the parent corporation will continue business as usual.
