Board votes to sell PVI

T he Washington County Board of Supervisors voted Wednesday, Feb. 29, to take the first step toward selling the Pleasant Valley Infirmary in Argyle and the county’s home-health care, long-term care and hospice programs.

The vote to sell to National Healthcare Associates, Inc., passed by a weighted vote of 2,542 to 1,670 Ten supervisors voted in favor of proceeding with the sale, including those from Hebron, Hartford, Granville, Hampton and Whitehall. Six voted against, and Dresden Supervisor Robert Banks was absent.
The county will now enter into a non-binding agreement with National Healthcare, which already owns 24 other nursing homes, including facilities in Glens Falls and Rutland, Vt.
National Healthcare’s initial bid was $6.56 million. Some supervisors would have preferred to sell the nursing home to National and the health-care programs to a combined bid by Fort Hudson Health System and Glens Falls Hospital. That proposal did not have enough support to get to the floor for consideration.
