A Skokie-based health care firm will operate the Vermilion Manor Nursing home. That's if the County Board goes along with the recommendation of the county board committee made last night.
The Nursing Home Committee of the Vermilion County Board is recommending the Vermilion Manor Nursing Home be sold to FNR Healthcare Group. FNR would partner with Premier Healthcare Management to operate the home ON Tilton Road..
At Tuesday's special committee meeting in Danville, County Board Chairman Gary Weinard told those attending that it was realized long ago that something had to be done......
What was done is voters decided by a 60% margin to allow the County Board do the necessary thing and find an operator. Weinard said his concern was finding a company that would maintain the nursing home operations and maintain local jobs.
Premier Healthcare currently operates five nursing homes in Illinois, including ones in Savoy and Gilman.
It will take a two-thirds vote of the full Vermilion County Board to approve the sale. The Board will be meeting in a special session next Wednesday (6/26) to consider finalizing the sale.
