The facility, which includes the 77-bed Wyndmoor Hills Premier Subacute Center, 103 apartments in Springfield Senior Living, and the Evergreen Adult Day Program, was taken over by a court-appointed management company in May after Skyline Healthcare was unable to make payroll.

The facility is currently being managed by the long-term care consulting company Long Hill Company of Shelton, Conn., which manages failing senior health care facilities placed in receivership by government agencies and advises managers looking to avoid failures.
