Butler County commissioners look to sell Sunnyview nursing home

Monday, Oct. 21, 2013, 12:01 a.m.
 

Butler County commissioners on Wednesday could take the first step toward selling the county nursing home.

The board is scheduled to authorize Chairman William McCarrier to sign a professional services contract with Marcus & Millichap real estate investment firm of Chicago to evaluate and market Sunnyview Nursing and Rehabilitation Center for sale.

The commissioners' meeting comes a week after workers at the county-run Sunnyview overwhelmingly rejected the county's proposal to reopen their contract in a 134-5 vote. McCarrier said he had no interest in privatizing Sunnyview if workers had agreed to concessions. Union officials said the concessions, including asking workers to contribute more to their benefits, including health care, were too drastic.

The nursing home has lost money nearly every year over the past decade, and expects to lose $1.4 million in 2013.
