County Nursing Home Sold To Private Company

"The main issue at hand was the commissioners considered whether the nursing home is part of the requirement of the government. I think that's what led them to this process," said Faust.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - For more than two centuries Franklin County owned the Falling Spring Nursing and Rehabilitation Center

"The county operated as a home leading up to this rehab center now for 205 years," said James Faust of the nursing center.

But after extensive consideration from the Franklin County commissioners, they decided to sell.

"The main issue at hand was the commissioners considered whether the nursing home is part of the requirement of the government. I think that's what led them to this process," said Faust.

This long standing facility is about to fall into the hands of a new ownership.

"The highlight was one, commissioners would proceed with the sale and two, the primary vendor and that's Mid-Atlantic Health Care," said Faust.

Despite the long process officials with the nursing home say staff members are excited about the transition of ownership.

"I'm excited, the change, to see what will happen as we go on forward, must to see what the company has to offer," said Nicole Marshall of the nursing center.

However, some locals share mixed feelings about the change.

"Any change is difficult. I wasn't happy. But I did some research on the finalists. I have to say I’m happy they chose mid-Atlantic," said Renee Sharpe, a local resident. 

Commissioner Dave Keller says this decision was made after what they believe would most closely align with the current model of providing quality care to their residents and a good working environment to their employees.
