KERMIT - The only nursing home in Kermit may be saved from closing its doors.

NewsWest 9 has learned that a company has made an offer to buy the Kermit Healthcare Services.

While it's not a done deal, the nursing home says it's a good sign they won't be shutting down.

If approved, the sale would go through by April.

That's a relief to many patients there.

They would have been forced to move out by the end of the month.

The nursing home says lack of patients and slow Medicare payments put them in financial trouble.
