UPMC Western Maryland Completes Sale Of Frostburg Nursing and Rehabilitation Center

March 3rd, 2020 by WCBC Radio

Earlier this year, UPMC Western Maryland announced the anticipated sale of the Frostburg Nursing and Rehabilitation Center (FNRC) to Axis Healthcare Group, LLC. That sale is now final.

  “Since we established FNRC in 1995 as a skilled nursing facility for long-term and short-term rehabilitation, the need for UPMC Western Maryland to have a nursing home as a component of our health system has lessened,” UPMC Western Maryland President Barry Ronan said. 

   “We have established excellent working relationships with all the nursing homes in western Maryland and West Virginia, and each of them works very closely with UPMC Western Maryland in advancing our value-based care delivery model and our implementation of population health initiatives. The opportunity to sell our nursing home to a reputable, well-established nursing home provider, Axis Healthcare Group, LLC, presented itself, and we decided to move forward with the sale of FNRC.

    “Axis will be welcomed as an additional community partner, and, most importantly, they share our commitment to providing patients with compassionate care and exemplary service, while identifying solutions to improve the health care delivery system,” Ronan said.

    UPMC Western Maryland employees and staff at FNRC have been given the opportunity to stay on as employees with Axis.
