Tonight the Champaign County Board’s Committee of the Whole will be meeting at 6:30 p.m. at Brookens Administrative Center.
This is a great opportunity to come out and to speak during Public Participation to let County Board Members know that you oppose the sale of Champaign County Nursing Home (CCNH) to the proposed buyer – Altitude Health and Extended Care Clinical, LLC. The County Board will vote on the sale of the CCNH next week, on Thursday, May 24. However, tonight is an important opportunity to speak publicly and on record.
You can also contact your County Board members by phone or by e-mail to let them know you oppose the sale of Champaign County Nursing Home to this buyer.
What we are asking the County Board to do, and why: Given the concerns that exist about the current bidder for the CCNH, and the need for more information, we are asking the County Board to simply pause, or slow down, and not rush into the sale of CCNH to this buyer. There are other developments that are promising for the CCNH, and these should be allowed some time. In addition, there are serious concerns about the pricing of CCNH as listed by the brokerage firm, Marcus & Millichap. Also, the $11 million asking price, set by Marcus & Millichap, is not enough to resolve the debt. There are enough concerns to ask the County Board to pause and slow down, rather than rushing ahead with the sale of CCNH to this buyer.
