Northfield Place, a nursing home in the Whitmore Lake area, was one of four Michigan nursing homes under investigation for allegations of health care fraud and poor patient care, state and federal authorities said this week.

It includes repaying $1.25 million to Medicare and Medicaid and agreeing to outside monitoring.
