Who Owns Consulate Nursing Homes?

All Consulate nursing homes and assisted living facilities are owned by Consulate Health Care. The Consulate Health Care company had humble beginnings in small town Pennsylvania, but has now grown into the 6th largest long-term care provider in the United States. At its height, Consulate operated more than 200 facilities across 20 states. The services offered by Consulate Health Care include nursing home, rehab, long term care, assisted living, Alzheimer’s and dementia care.

Today, Consulate has sold off some of its skilled nursing portfolio. However, the healthcare giant operates, manages, or oversees a series of other healthcare companies. Some of these companies include the brand names Raydiant Health Care, Independence Living Centers, and NSPIRE Healthcare

Consulate Nursing Homes:
Alleged Negligence Lawsuits & Understaffing of Nurses

Understaffing of nurses and CNAs is a major contributor to nursing home neglect injuries. If there are not enough staff to watch after at-risk residents, preventable nursing home injuries occur. Many Consulate Health Care facilities were placed on Florida’s “nursing home watch list” for operating below state standings. Specifically, many Consulate nursing homes were cited for failing to meet the state’s minimum staffing standards. An investigation revealed more than half of Florida Consulate nursing homes were chronically understaffed. This lack of available nurses and CNA’s resulted in Consulate paying almost  $2 million in federal and state fines from 2013 to present. In addition to the fines paid, resident care was negatively impacted by the lack of nurses working inside the facility.

Nursing Home Abuse Injury Lawsuit Against Consulate

In the wake of the above understaffing findings, Consulate nursing homes have been sued by individual families for wrongful death and injury claims arising out of nursing home abuse.

The following nursing home negligence claims have been brought against Consulate:

Claim vs. Consulate Health Care of Winter Haven: A nursing home resident’s survivors sued Consulate because the patient died of infections and dehydration 5 days after her discharge from the facility.

Claim vs. Consulate of Lake Parker: A resident of Consulate of Lake Parker nursing home developed a large bedsore and gangrene of their foot. This ultimately resulted in an amputation of their right foot. The patient also suffered dehydration and died on November 25, 2013. 

Claim vs. Consulate Health Care of Lakeland: A nursing home abuse claim was brought against Consulate of Lakeland with allegations that nurses allowed a resident to suffer a nursing home fall, resulting in a hip fracture and subsequent wrongful death.

Consulate Down Sizes its Nursing Home Footprint

At its peak, Consulate had 208 buildings across 21 states. Consulate was one of the country’s largest nursing home corporations. Since its rapid growth took off, Consulate Healthcare has faced its share of legal issues, including a bankruptcy filing and a financial settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice.

As of May 2022, Consulate has about 60 facilities spanning Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Virginia, Louisiana, and Mississippi.

Consulate has allegedly sold off its Florida facilities, however, some current board of director members overlap with Consulate board of director members. Florida Consulate facilities were spun off to different smaller chains, including but not limited to Raydiant Health Care, Independence Living Centers, and NSPIRE Healthcare. Despite being separate companies, for many of these “sold” facilities, Consulate remains the corporate office for these newly formed nursing home corporations. It is unclear what, if any, role Consulate plays in managing the operations of nursing homes branded under the names Raydiant Health Care, Independence Living Centers, and NSPIRE Healthcare.
