Commissioners negotiate $1.5 million-offer for former hospital
BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) – Brunswick County Commissioners are
now in negotiations with a company for the purchase of the former
Brunswick Community Hospital property.
Crown Management offered $1.5 million for the 32-acre property in "as
is" condition. The county advertised that bid for 10 days and didn't
receive any higher offers, according to Commissioner Bill Sue.
If accepted, Crown Management has proposed using the building to
operate a mental health care hospital or a psychiatric resident
treatment facility. The two owners of Crown said they have over 50 years
of experience in the operation of treatment facilities in North
In a letter sent to Commissioners, Crown said they hope this project
will create more than 80 jobs and provide crucial mental health services
to the county's population.
The county is looking at other options, such as tearing the facility
down, but Commissioners hope to make a preliminary decision at their
meeting on Monday.
