Attorneys for the state Agency for Health Care Administration and Destin Healthcare on Monday received a 60-day delay in their case on Monday.

TALLAHASSEE — Health-care regulators and operators of a Northwest Florida nursing home are negotiating a potential settlement in a dispute stemming the state’s attempt to suspend the facility’s license.

Attorneys for the state Agency for Health Care Administration and Destin Healthcare on Monday asked the 1st District Court of Appeal to put on hold a hearing scheduled next week in the case. The court agreed, issuing an order to abate the case for 60 days.

“Destin Healthcare and AHCA (the agency) are actively engaged in settlement negotiations which, if successful, should obviate the need for further appellate proceedings before this court,” the joint motion said.
