Report: Cabrini Nursing Home to Close in a Few Months

The Cabrini nursing home provides care for 240 patients.

For the past few months, we’ve been following developments at the Cabrini Nursing Home on East 5th Street. Last year the building was sold to developer Ben Shaoul, who planned to convert the facility to luxury condos.  As we reported, negotiations were ongoing which could have preserved the nursing home. This afternoon EV Grieve reports the talks have failed:

According to an anonymous source, Cabrini has run out of options and will close its doors in four to five months. During this time, Cabrini officials will find new homes for its residents as well as placement for current day-care clients. Cabrini officials informed their employees of the impending closure today.
