POMONA - A deal to sell Rockland County's Summit Park Hospital and nursing home fell through today at the last minute.

The deal was to sell them for $32 million to private owner Sympaticare.

County Executive Ed Day is blaming the County Legislature and the union representing most of the Summit Park workers for putting up too many obstacles.

He also singled out the Civil Service Employees Association for failing to drop a lawsuit over the sale.

CSEA Regional President Billy Riccaldo blames Day. "His administration failed to give Sympaticare the cooperation needed to make a smooth transition, and now patients, residents and workers may suffer," says Riccaldo.

It was no secret that there would be layoffs under Sympaticare, but the canceled deal means all 473 workers will be laid off.

Plans now call for relocating patients and shutting down operations by the end of the year.
