LIBERTY, NY—The Sunset Lake Local Development Corporation (LDC), Sullivan County and Infinite Care Management formally signed an agreement last week. Infinite Care will act as consultants on the operation of the Care Center at Sunset Lake in Liberty for the next 20 years. The agreement is renewable if both parties so choose.
“This was a complicated endeavor but a worthwhile one,” said LDC Board Chairman Lowell Feldman. “I am pleased to predict that the future for the Care Center, and for the people of Sullivan County, looks very bright.”
“Infinite Care is excited for the opportunity to join the Sullivan County family in providing excellent care for its senior community,” said Sol Klein, principal of Infinite Care. “We appreciate the trust the county has placed in us, and we are looking forward to further earning that trust as we move forward.”
Renewable by either party, the operating agreement guarantees that Infinite Care will invest $3 million in the Care Center within the first three years of operation, followed by an $800,000 annual fee paid to the LDC thereafter. Per its charter, the LDC will remit those funds to the county.
“This agreement promises to improve the services rendered to those who depend on the Care Center, and relieve taxpayers of having to cover a shortfall every year,” said Legislature Chairman Robert Doherty.
Klein noted that “Infinite Care’s vision is to strengthen the entire community by partnering with them to preserve and promote job opportunities and quality of life for staff and residents.
“Residents of Sullivan County,” he continued, “can be confident that Infinite Care has the means and the desire to do right by this precious population.”
“As both a legislator and member of the LDC board, my goal in this process has been to give people what we owe them: excellent care delivered compassionately and competently,” said District 2 Legislator Nadia Rajsz, who also chairs the legislature’s health and family services committee. “This is what Infinite Care has promised, and this agreement holds them to that guarantee. I look forward to the improvements they’ll bring to the Care Center.”
Infinite Care plans to rebrand the Care Center in the near future and will make further announcements as updates occur. Sullivan County will remain the employer of record, with workers receiving county benefits.
