NAGS HEAD, N.C. (WAVY) — Residents of an Outer Banks nursing facility will not have to move.

A few weeks ago, 10 On You Side told you Colony Ridge Nursing and Rehabilitation Center was in danger of closing. The residents were caught in the middle of a fight between the facility’s management company and the Town of Nags Head. The company was supposed to make more than $1 million in renovations or face eviction.

Town leaders now say a new operator will take care of all the requirements to keep the facility open.

“We are pleased that an agreement has been reached for a new company to assume operations at the Colony Ridge Nursing Home and Rehabilitation Center,” said Nags Head Mayor Bob Edwards, in a statement on the town’s website.

The mayor went on to say that the residents and staff members of the nursing home will not experience a disruption of service during the transition.
