HRHS plans purchase of South Boston Manor, relocate beds

Halifax Regional Health System (HRHS) has announced its quest to relocate the 54 nursing home beds which may be available after South Boston Manor closes this spring.

South Boston Manor provided public notice Feb. 22 that the facility would be closing, with all residents to be safely relocated by April 23. The operator of South Boston Manor has indicated the aging facility, small size and low census all contributed to the closure and it was no longer financially viable to continue operations.

“Halifax Regional has entered into an agreement with intent to purchase South Boston Manor,” said HRHS Chief Executive Officer Chris Lumsden. “However, due to the size and age of the facility, and the state application requirements for relocating nursing homes beds, it was not feasible for us to operate. Our focus is helping current South Boston Manor residents find accommodations at HRHS facilities wherever possible and then working to eventually relocate the nursing home beds from South Boston Manor to HRHS facilities.”

Lumsden said HRHS is working through all the proper state-mandated channels to seek approval to relocate some or all of the 54 beds to existing HRHS facilities. This process, which is directed by the state and involves extensive work, will take several months to finalize.

HRHS currently has two long-term care facilities, The Woodview, including Seasons at The Woodview, in South Boston and MeadowView Terrace in Clarksville. A total of 348 nursing home beds are encompassed in these facilities. Each of HRHS’s long term care affiliates focuses on resident-directed and person-centered care and supports resident autonomy, independence and individuality.
