King's Daughters' Health officials are still working out details to sell the downtown hospital to a long-term care facility operator, spokesman Dave Ommen said this week.

He would not give details and said it isn't known when the sale will be announced.

In May, President and CEO Roger Allman told the mayor's blue-ribbon committee that KDH was having "very serious talks" with a company in the Midwest. He would not provide details.

KDH expects to admit its first patients to the new hospital on the hilltop in February.
