Judge OKs Landmark sale to Prime Health Care

October 9, 2012

PROVIDENCE — Faced with what was portrayed as a now-or-never choice, a Superior Court judge yesterday approved the sale of financially troubled Landmark Medical Center to Prime Health Care of California.
Judge Michael Silverstein’s decision clears the way for the fast-growing, for-profit chain to seek approval of the $60 million deal from state regulators under the Hospital Conversions Act.
Prime says it will take no longer than 45 days to submit a formal application to regulators and, if it’s approved, they’re ready to close on the sale by May 31, 2013.
“We are in a critical, critical stage with respect to the hospital,” said Landmark receivership master Jonathan Savage. “We were fortunate to get Prime back to the table.”
