The last bid standing for Frederick County’s nursing and assisted living centers belongs to a Millersville-based company that has offered to pay $30 million for the facilities and keep their current employees. County commissioners discussed the proposal from Aurora Health Management in a roughly hourlong closed session Thursday afternoon. Their move to entertain the offer marks the latest step in deciding the future of Citizens Care and Rehabilitation Center and Montevue Assisted Living, two facilities whose large budget gaps have caused commissioners to explore selling options.
