Pennsylvania SNF Sells for $20.9M; Strawberry Fields’ $21M Kentucky Play

The property associated with the Sanatoga Center skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility in Sanatoga, Penn., sold for more than $20.9 million, The Santoga Post reported Wednesday.

The deal closed on Jan. 28. The property was previously owned by DELM Nursing Inc. of Kennett Square, Pa.; it was sold to a company called Santoga RE, according to Montgomery County property tax records cited by The Post.

Santoga RE is directing contacts to Next Healthcare Group in Manhattan, N.Y., the publication noted. Next recently partnered with Genesis HealthCare (NYSE: GEN) to help the Kennett Square, Pa.-based operator purchase 15 SNFs from Welltower Inc. (NYSE: WELL) in a $204 million deal.


Both Sanatoga Court — a companion building to Sanatoga Center — and the SNF are apparently under Genesis’ management, the Post said.
