Posada del Sol is sold to private operator

Pima County has finalized the sale and transition of its 149-bed skilled nursing facility, Posada del Sol Health Care Center, to a private company. The county had operated the facility since 1971.

Last April the County Administrator and the Board of Supervisors began the process of selling Posada, delineating a list of requirements that must be met by any entity desiring to purchase the facility. Critical to the decision was the Board of Supervisors' determination that the buyer maintain the County's priorities: the wellbeing of the residents, and of the people who provide the residents with such high-quality care.

A successful bidder was selected. A multi-disciplinary team began to work on the transition once the sale of the facility was approved by the Board of Supervisors in August 2011. The county's goals were to ensure a smooth transition of employment for the 340-plus dedicated and loyal nursing home employees and to preserve services for the vulnerable residents. The new owner began operating the nursing home, located at 2250 N. Craycroft Road, as Foothills Rehabilitation Center, LLC, on Jan. 1, 2012.
