The Mercer County Board will vote on the sale of the Mercer County Nursing Home to Genesis Health System. Mercer County voters last month overwhelmingly approved a referendum giving the Mercer County Board authority to sell the nursing home. Sale of the nursing home will require a 2/3 majority vote, or 7 votes of the 10-member board. Genesis Health System has made an offer of $2.25 million for the nursing home and if approved, has committed to taking ownership of the hospital as well. Genesis plans on investing approximately $15 million in the combined Mercer County Hospital and Mercer County Nursing Home operations. Genesis presently manages both facilities.
