Geisinger becomes the first member of Risant Health

DANVILLE, Pa. – Geisinger announced today the sale of Geisinger Bloomsburg Health Care Center to Bloomsburg Care and Rehabilitation Center, LLC, and Mountain View Care Center in Scranton to Mountain View Care and Rehabilitation Center, LLC, assignees of Skyline Healthcare, Inc., effective February 1, 2018. Regulatory approval of the sale has been received from the Charitable Trust Section of the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office and the Pennsylvania Department of Health.

“The decision to move forward with Skyline Healthcare and its assignees was made following a detailed analysis of interested organizations,” said Geisinger Vice President for Achieving Excellence, Scott Davis. “We selected Skyline, based on its quality, proven success operating skilled nursing facilities, and track record of high patient and employee satisfaction.”

“We are pleased with the addition of these quality facilities to our organization,” said Skyline Healthcare Vice President of Operations, Tom Miller “Like Geisinger, Skyline puts patients first. There will be no disruption of services, and we look forward to a bright future caring for patients and being part of the Bloomsburg and Scranton communities.” 

This type of specialized, long-term care has not traditionally been part of Geisinger’s core operations. Mountain View Care Center joined Geisinger as part of the Geisinger Community Medical Center integration and Geisinger Bloomsburg Health Care Center joined the organization as part of the Geisinger Bloomsburg Hospital transaction, both in 2012.

“Operating skilled nursing facilities successfully requires economies of scale that we just don’t have with only two facilities,” said Davis. “It makes good fiscal sense to sell, and with Skyline’s assurances to retain employees and accept all types of patients, it also makes sense from an operational point of view. We thank the Attorney General’s Office and the Department of Health for their review and approval.”

Geisinger employed 400 people at the Bloomsburg and Mountain View care centers. Skyline Healthcare has committed to retaining employees in good standing and accepting all types of patients.
