EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. — Blueprint Healthcare Real Estate Advisors has brokered the sale of University Nursing and Rehabilitation Center and Edwardsville Nursing and Rehabilitation, both located in Edwardsville, for $5.5 million.
The purchase price equates to approximately $24,000 per bed. The sale was prompted by the operator’s motivation to reduce its overall exposure to the state’s challenging reimbursement environment and its initial intention to not operate the facilities in the long term, according to a news release. Combined, the facilities were operating at approximately breakeven on nearly $12 million in total revenues. Josh Salzman, Michael Segal and Ben Firestone of Blueprint led the transaction. A St. Louis-based investor purchased the asset. The seller was not disclosed.
