An 88-bed skilled nursing facility that was owned and operated by University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Western Maryland just sold with the help of Mark Davis of Healthcare Transactions Group. The integrated health system, one of the largest in the country with some 40 hospitals after a February 2020 merger between the UPMC hospital network and Western Maryland Health System, sold the facility to a New York-based skilled nursing owner/operator with existing SNFs in Maryland and elsewhere on the East Coast. 

Thoroughly renovated and upgraded, the facility is located in Frostburg, Maryland. It was originally built as a hospital and now includes a secure 22-bed Alzheimer’s/dementia unit with an enclosed outdoor courtyard. According to public documents, it generated gross operating revenue of more than $6.7 million in fiscal year 2019. After a naming contest among its staff, the facility will be renamed Mountain City Rehabilitation Center.
