NEW CITY, N.Y. -- Another salvo has been fired in the long battle over the failure of a $32 million deal to sell a long-term care hospital in Pomona, according to a report on lohud.com
Rockland County, sued by the would-be buyer, Monsey businessman Shalom Braunstein, chief executive officer of Sympaticare Health, has fired back with a lawsuit of its own, claiming that he knew he was in no position to buy the Summit Park Hospital and Nursing Care Center, the lohud.com report said.
County Executive Ed Day told lohud.com that Braunstein had neither the money nor the approvals needed to close the deal.
The county, which is seeking $16 million, said Braunstein is in breach of his contract, while the Sympaticare Health executive is asking that the county fork over $5.9 million in lost fees and damages, according to lohud.com and previous media reports.
