The Mercer County Board approved the sale of the county nursing home to Genesis Health System.
A two-thirds super majority vote was required, and the board approved the sale with a 7-3 vote at its meeting Monday, April 16, 2012.
The board vote followed voter approval of a referendum authorizing the sale of the nursing home.
A Genesis Health Systems spokesperson said Genesis offered $2.25 million to Mercer County to acquire the nursing home.
Genesis will also acquire Mercer County Hospital. Genesis already operates both facilities.
