Sun Mar Health Care Claims Ownership of Sold Facility
Date:1/21/2008

- Courtyard Healthcare Center Dropped From Class Action -

- COMPLAINT AND ATTORNEY INTERVIEW AVAILABLE -

LONG BEACH, Calif., Jan. 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Documents signed under penalty of perjury in 2006 and 2007 by Sun Mar Health Care's and Sun Mar Management's chief financial officer, which they filed with the California Office of Statewide Planning & Development, inaccurately lists Courtyard Healthcare Center in Davis, Calif., as one of Sun Mar's 18 California skilled nursing facilities.

The revelation came to light when Courtyard Healthcare Center was included in a class action lawsuit (Case #30-200800037875), filed Jan. 10, 2008 in Orange County Superior Court against Sun Mar Health Care, Inc., Sun Mar Management, and its 18 California skilled nursing homes [see list by city at end of release] on behalf of Warren Richardson, by and through his Attorney in Fact Marlene Miller, on Richardson's behalf and on behalf of all California citizens who resided in, or are residing in, one of the company's California facilities from Jan. 8, 2005 through Jan. 5, 2008.

"Apparently Sun Mar's paperwork is in as good a shape as its facilities," says Long Beach, Calif., plaintiff attorney Stephen M. Garcia of The Garcia Law Firm. "Sun Mar filed papers in 2006 and in 2007 with the OSPD claiming it had a 37 percent interest in Courtyard Health Care. In reality, Sun Mar sold 100 percent of the facility in April 1999. Courtyard Healthcare Center will be dropped immediately from the suit."

The papers were signed under penalty of perjury by Sun Mar's chief financial officer and secretary of the corporation, William Presnell. The same form lists Frank Johnson, Blaine Hendrickson, Eli Marmur and Irv Bauman as owners with at least five percent of the for-profit company that is headquartered in Brea, Calif.

"Sun Mar facilities have a long history of citations for deficiencies," says Garcia. "In fact, their Fontana, Calif.,19 notices of deficiencies by the California Department of Health for providing substandard care and violating residents' rights.
