BALLSTON SPA, N.Y. – Saratoga County's Maplewood Manor Nursing Home has new owners as of Tuesday afternoon.
The Maplewood Manor Local Development Corporation (LDC) Board of Directors unanimously approved the selection of Zenith Care Health Group to purchase Maplewood Manor.
Zenith was selected from a group of seven applicants after an evaluation process. The company will purchase the facility for $14.1 million, and has also committed to investing an additional $2.5 million in capital improvements within 18 months of taking ownership.
Zenith has agreed to continue to care for every resident of Maplewood Manor, will look first to hire existing employees, and will negotiate cost-effective contracts with local vendors when practicable.
The move comes after months of heated debates last year where many fought plans to transition the home from county to privately-owned.
