Shuttered nursing home in Wallingford sells for $1.6M

Contributed Quinnipiac Valley Center at 55 Kondracki Lane in Wallingford.

A nursing home in Wallingford that was forced to close last year after the Department of Public Health found seven life-threatening violations has been sold.

Quinnipiac Valley Center, a 180-bed skilled nursing facility at 55 Kondracki Lane, was sold by Genesis HealthCare to Fifty-Five LLC, a company owned by Mindy Schwarz-Raup, who has addresses in Wallingford and Branford. The sale price was $1.6 million and the warranty deed was filed Jan. 25, according to town records.

The facility was shuttered last February and remained empty at the time of the sale.

Blueprint Healthcare Real Estate Advisors, which brokered the deal, said in a press release that the facility had been sold to “a Florida-based developer with local ties to Wallingford.”

It's unclear what Schwarz-Raup plans to do with the property, or what her ties are to Florida. Representatives for the company did not return messages from the Hartford Business Journal.

The DPH ordered Quinnipiac Valley to close after the death of two patients prompted an investigation last February. The DPH uncovered seven violations of "immediate jeopardy," meaning they were serious enough to risk imminent harm to life, according to a March 14, 2022 article published by the CT Mirror.

At the time, DPH Commissioner Manisha Juthani said that "seven instances of immediate jeopardy are unprecedented in Connecticut and absolutely unacceptable."

On Friday, a spokesman for the DPH said the investigation has been closed and that there is a moratorium on new nursing homes in Connecticut.
