Our Ongoing Lease Negotiations
Over the past few weeks, there has been a lot of misinformation in the news about HCR ManorCare’s lease renegotiations. Often, the media are more interested in creating news than reporting it, and that has led to a lot of misleading and inaccurate information being disseminated as if it is factual. The health care industry has long been a vulnerable and easy target.
While this type media coverage can be a distraction to our day-to-day business, our caregivers are driven to maintain business as usual – providing quality care in a caring environment to the patients, residents and their families we serve.
We have been renegotiating our master lease agreement for several months now, and HCR’s leadership team continues to vigorously work to get this issue resolved to the benefit of our company and those we serve. The outcome of those negotiations will not affect our commitment to delivering high-quality patient care nor will it negatively impact employees, benefits or relationships with our referral sources or those who provide goods and services to enable us to care for our patients.
Unfortunately, we can’t eliminate the distractions, but be assured that we will do all we can to deliver on our commitment to be helpful, caring and responsive to the patients and families who rely on us for quality health care and to our employee caregivers who serve them.
