The Rock Island County Board rejected the sale of Hope Creek to Aperion Care in a vote during a meeting Thursday night.
The vote came after Aperion lowered their $6 million offer to purchase the nursing home located in East Moline to $4 million.
Eight board members were in favor of taking the new offer from Aperion, but 15 members were against it.
The board now will look to find a reasonable offer and hope to find a buyer soon.
The sale of Hope Creek to Aperion was approved by the board with a 17 to 5 vote in February. Finalization of the sale was expected to take place in August of this year.
