ALBION – With the sale of the county-owned nursing home complete, a three-person local development corporation will dissolve on Friday.

The Orleans County Legislature formed the Orleans County Health Facilities Corporation on March 7, 2013. The entity was tasked with selling the 120-bed Villages of Orleans Health and Rehabilitation Facility.

Russ Martino, a former Yates town supervisor and retired Lyndonville principal, has served as the LDC’s chairman. The Legislature also appointed former Gaines Town Supervisor Richard DeCarlo Sr. and current Clarendon Town Supervisor Richard Moy to the group.

It accepted a $7.8 million offer from Comprehensive Healthcare Management Services LLC. That entity became the owner on Jan. 1.

The Orleans County Health Facilities Corporation will meet at 10:30 a.m. on Friday at the Orleans County legislative chambers in the County Clerks’ Building, 3 South Main St., Suite 2.
