Two Former Consulate SNFs Sold in Bankruptcy Disposition; Lument Sees $1.49B Year – Skilled Nursing News

Evans Senior Investments (ESI) announced it represented the bankruptcy disposition of two skilled nursing communities in Florida tied to Consulate Health Care.

The bankruptcy stemmed from a whistleblower case that resulted in a civil fraud judgment of $256 million, of which Consulate Health Care was ordered to pay $4.5 million.

Both nursing homes operated under the Consulate Health Care brand and filed for bankruptcy when the SNF operating entities couldn’t afford to pay the judgment against them, according to the news release.

This deal comes as Consulate is in the midst of rebranding in the state of Florida.

ESI represented the debtors in the sale and the assets were ultimately sold after an auction in a credit bid transaction to a related party.
