CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — At least 12 groups are considering submitting proposals to buy the Franklin County-owned Falling Spring Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, county officials said Thursday.
County officials have distributed packets to a dozen skilled nursing providers seeking information about the possible sale of the nursing home, according to Franklin County Commissioner David Keller.
“At least two vendors have been in to tour the facility, and I believe a couple other tours are in the works,” Keller said Thursday.
Transitions Healthcare and New Dawn Retirement Services completed tours conducted by a consultant and nursing home staff, Keller said.
“Our staff has had a positive impression from their interaction with the companies that have toured,” he said, noting the businesses provided good feedback as well.
Falling Spring Nursing and Rehabilitation Center employs 223 people.
The commissioners are looking for a company or agency with a business plan that reflects a commitment to caring for people, particularly those who are Medicaid eligible, Keller said.
