Montco Nursing Care Facility Parkhouse for Sale
The Montgomery County Commissioners are setting the bar high for health care management companies interested in buying Parkhouse, the county nursing home in Upper Providence Township. They approved issuing a request for proposals Thursday. County officials say taxpayers as well as Parkhouse employees, residents and their family members would all need to be convinced that a change in ownership is for the best. The facility has almost 500 beds and about 700 employees. The 15-acre county park across the street from Parkhouse would not be affected by the sale of the nursing home and would remain as is.
