A bankruptcy filing by Orianna Health Systems put at least nine wrongful death lawsuits against the company’s nursing homes on hold indefinitely.
Orianna filed for bankruptcy in March. Operated by 4 West Holdings, the Tennessee-based company has a total of 42 nursing homes across seven states.
Orianna plans to sell its 19 South Carolina and Georgia facilities under terms of a restructuring agreement. Its landlord, Omega Healthcare Investors, could assume the other 23.
The company did not return McKnight’s calls seeking comment.
