Rock Island County Sells Hope Creek
The sale of Hope Creek Care Center in East Moline is now final. Thursday the sale by Rock Island County of its nursing home to Infinity Health Care was finalized.
From now on it'll be called the Hope Creek Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.
In a press release, County Board Chair Richard Brunk says the sale helps the board meet its top priorities - to keep the nursing home open, and to protect its nearly 200 jobs.
In addition, it will no longer be a financial drain on the county - since it opened in 2009, Hope Creek has lost about two million dollars a year.
Infinity owns nursing homes in Illinois, and four other states - Indiana, Kentucky, Arkansas, and Tennessee.
