Tryko Partners has agreed to buy the Inglis House nursing home in West Philadelphia.

The Inglis Foundation has agreed to sell its nursing home in West Philadelphia to a fast-growing for-profit organization in New Jersey that owns 10 foundations in the Philadelphia region, the nonprofit Inglis said Thursday.

The sale of Inglis House, a 252-bed facility dating back to 1877, builds on a trend of charities exiting the nursing home business to escape constant financial and regulatory pressures to maintain their overall missions.

Federal records show Inglis House, which cares for the paralyzed and disabled, had an operating loss of $75 million in the five years ended June 30, 2021, still about $240 million short of the organization’s top endowment.

“If we used all of the investment accounts to write off our losses, the entire organization would cease to exist going forward, and that’s what we’re trying to prevent,” said Diane Roth, CEO of the Inglis Foundation.

The Medicaid rate hike, which pays for most nursing-home care in Pennsylvania, “will only extend our life cycle by about five years,” Roth said, and there is much uncertainty about how long the rate increases will last and how much will go to nursing home providers.

Roth declined to say how much Inglis will receive for its facilities at 2600 Belmont Ave. The sale also includes the Morris-Klein Apartments on the same campus. For the year ended June 30, 2021, Inglis’ gross revenue, including home and community services and affordable housing, was $40 million.

Any sale of a nonprofit nursing home sets off alarms for advocates, but for-profits have been the only buyers in recent years.

“We couldn’t identify a non-profit organization that would be able to do the surgery that comes with so many quick losses,” Roth said.

Abramson Senior Care faced a similar dilemma when it sold its top-rated Horsham nursing home to Imperial Healthcare Group in 2020.

Buyer Inglis chose Tryko Partners, Brick, NJ, a firm backed by four families, according to regulatory filings. Already this year, Tryko has taken over the former Restore Health University campus at 3609 Chestnut St. And the nonprofit Virtua Health has acquired nursing homes in Berlin and Mount Holly. In the year In 2020, Trico purchased another non-profit organization, the former Regina Nursing Center, now the Markley Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, in Norristown.

Trico has been buying the Kearsley Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in Philadelphia since 2013, less than a mile from Inglis. Trico has about 45 nursing homes on the East Coast.

Trico, led by Yitzchok Rokowski, invests in apartments, nursing homes and tax liens, according to its website. Marquis Ltd., run by Nachum, also known as Norman, Roquech, provides what Trico described as “consulting services” to Trico’s nursing homes.

According to regulatory filings in other states, Marquis sometimes collects a 6% fee for its work, but Trico said in an email that Inglis expects the fee to be lower. Trico describes its individual nursing homes as “self-operated,” but Kearsley, for example, pays rent, management and consulting fees to four Tryko-affiliated entities, according to a recent federal spending report on

Inglis House, which employs 502, operates as Enlive Rehabilitation and Wellness at Inglis House.

The sale would require approval from the state attorney general’s office and the Philadelphia Orphans’ Court, as it would transfer the charity’s assets into for-profit control. These processes can take months.

Meanwhile, residents are on pins and needles.

“For more than 100 years, the Foundation has come to England, and we’ve felt overwhelmed and shocked,” said Mary Syzick, 67, who has lived in England for 14 years. . “Then they told us we were up for sale.”

Syzick describes Inglis as the “crown jewel” of long-term care. “It’s absolutely wonderful,” she said. “Alama Technology has a computer lab. Visiting our classrooms will assist in setting up our classrooms so that people with hearing impairments are able to cope with their voices.

Cysical stress that can change after the sale. The sale agreement calls for Trico to allow existing residents to remain at Inglis for as long as they choose.

Diane Menio, executive director of the Advocacy Center for Seniors’ Rights and Interests in Center City, said she hopes Inglis chose a good vendor for the sale.

“The thing about Inglis House is that the residents are very, very vocal. They don’t give these people an easy time,” Menio said, referring to the tenants. The owners “are more accountable in this facility than they are in most facilities,” she said.
