Sept. 19, 2022 – (Hayward, CA) Parkview Healthcare Center, part of the Mariner Health Care family of 20 skilled nursing facilities in the state, has filed a petition for relief under Chapter 11 in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware. The petition seeks to maintain uninterrupted care for residents of the 121-bed nursing home in Hayward, CA. Mariner Health Central, Inc., which provides administrative, operational and clinical support to Parkview and other affiliated companies, is also seeking to reorganize.
On August 23, 2022, the California Superior Court in Alameda County entered a final judgement in favor of 10 current or former residents of Parkview in the case of Ledesma, et al. v. Parkview Healthcare Center et al., totaling approximately $14 million in damages, attorneys’ fees and costs. Parkview Healthcare Center and Mariner Health Central, Inc., strongly disagree with this judgment and have appealed to the California Court of Appeal. The appeal is based on the Court’s decision to combine ten residents with unrelated claims and who resided at Parkview at various times into one lawsuit, among other grounds.
“The goal of the reorganization is to maintain continuous care and services for existing Parkview residents and ongoing payment of wages and benefits to employees, while paying creditors over time,” said Linda Taetz, Parkview’s president.
Parkview has communicated to residents and families its intention to remain fully operational and that all resident programs and services will continue as usual. Separately, employees have been informed the facility has sufficient financing to continue operations and pay all wages and benefits and that there are no plans to close the facility or engage in layoffs.
