Possible deal on Jefferson County Nursing Home

A Jefferson County committee has accepted a $2.9 million dollar bid for the county nursing home property in Tarrant. As part of the of deal, the company would likely take on remaining patients. The laundry will also close, and 10 employees will lose their jobs.

The hinges on final approval for the sale of beds to Northport Holdings L.L.C. The full commission will vote on the plan Thursday. The move is the latest effort by Jefferson County to get out of the healthcare business.
