Brunswick commissioners consider new deal for old hospital
BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — It looks like Brunswick County has a buyer for the old Brunswick Community Hospital building on US 17 in Bolivia.
The agenda for Monday night’s Brunswick County Commission meeting includes a new agreement with Crown Management Group. Crown had agreed last year to buy the property for $1.5 million, but pulled out.
The new deal is a five-year lease purchase agreement. Crown would pay the county one dollar a year and then $1,499,995 at the end of the lease to complete the sale. Crown will pay the county a $20,000 down payment and $20,000 each year of the lease.
Crown will also assume full responsibility for all utility and energy costs and building and ground maintenance. To assist with that, the county will give Crown all rental income from medical suites, which is currently about $74,000 a year.
The county put the building on the market when the hospital closed and moved to the new Brunswick Novant Medical Center up the road last summer.
