Assisted Living Concepts Facility's License Revoked For Violations in Washington

Assisted Living Concepts Inc., based in Menomonee Falls, has also agreed to be sold. The company went through a difficult year when several states found a series of violations.

An Assisted Living Concepts Inc., a Menomonee Falls-based operator of 210 senior living residences in 20 states, facility in Washington state had its license revoked for substandard care found last month in an inspection, reported Kitsap Sun.

Evan Zeppos, spokesman Assisted Living Concepts Inc., told the Washington newspaper that company leaders disagree with the license revocation and will appeal.

Department of Social and Health Services found that the the Washington facility, Sydney House, violated 18 rules. 

One of the violations, indicated by the newspaper, involved a staffer disobeying instructions that resulted in the fall of an elderly woman. Other violations include the facility not reporting incidents to DSHS in an appropriate amount of time or at all. 

Assisted Living Concepts announced in February it had agreed to be sold to Texas-based private-equity firm TPG for $278 million, reported the Business Journal.

Assisted Living Concepts had been losing money and endured a difficult year after it fired its chief executive officer when several states found a series of violations in ALC locations, reported the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Shareholders of Assisted Living Concepts will vote on the sale of the facilities in May.
