NOONAN, N.D. (AP) - A former nursing home in the northwest North

Dakota town of Noonan has been converted to housing for oil field

and other area workers.

The nursing home closed in April 2008. Richard Ford bought the

building and turned it into The Crash Pad, which operates similar

to an extended-stay hotel.

Manager Marci Girodengo says the 18 double-occupancy rooms

usually are full and that in the past the facility has even had a

waiting list.
