In addition, Southern Health reached a management agreement with Progressive Health to manage the operations of the hospital and clinics until regulatory approvals are obtained.

Southern Health will also sell some of the real estate assets of Trace to Progressive Health by 31 July 2024, as part of a $2m real estate purchase agreement. 

According to SunLink Health Systems, the transaction to sell Trace Regional Hospital and its real estate assets is expected to result in an aggregate loss ranging from $1.8-2.2m.  

The exact loss is yet to be ascertained by the company.  

To determine an accurate amount, the company is waiting for a detailed analysis of the costs associated with the property sold by Trace Hospital and retained by Trace Extended Care & Rehabilitation, as the two operations have been operated as one facility for a long time. 

Trace Extended Care & Rehabilitation is a skilled care nursing facility located near the campus of Trace Hospital. 

SunLink Health Systems, the parent company, oversees various subsidiaries that manage healthcare properties and businesses in the Southeast US.  

Each subsidiary operates locally, aiming to connect patients with healthcare professionals.
