Otsego Manor sale is now official

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - The sale of Otsego Manor in Cooperstown is official.

Focus Ventures has purchased the facility for $18.5 million. The local development corporation that was formed to handle the sale visited the Focus facility in Utica and is confident this is the best choice for Otsego County as well.

The state health department just has to approve the sale before Otsego Manor becomes a privatized nursing facility, which could take several months.

In January, the company said it would hire "dozens" of new employees for their assisted living and daycare programs, as well as construction jobs to improve the space.
