Algoma closes sale of Long Term Care Unit

The City of Algoma officially sold the Algoma Medical Center and Long-Term Care Unit on Thursday afternoon.  The new owners, Sam and Abby Follman of Mequon, purchased the facility for $1.5 million after approaching the city in October of 2021.  Follman says the goal is to continue growing the business and the great care provided to people in the Algoma community and the greater Kewaunee County area.



One of the few municipalities in the state that still operated a long-term care unit, the Algoma Common Council voted last February to sell the facility.   Follman has experience as a Director of Operations for Skilled Nursing Facilities and is venturing into ownership for the first time.  The Algoma Long-Term Care facility has 42 bed and provides skilled nursing and rehabilitation care.
