Ascentria Care Alliance Acquires Skilled Nursing Facility, Continuing to Expand Its Presence in Greater Boston

January 22, 2019 Ascentria Care Alliance
Worcester, MA – Ascentria Care Alliance, one of the largest human service organizations in New England, has acquired the Presentation Rehabilitation and Skilled Care Center in Brighton, Massachusetts.  This is the second skilled nursing facility in the Boston area acquired by Ascentria, with Presentation joining Laurel Ridge Rehabilitation and Skilled Care Center in Jamaica Plain, MA as an affiliate of Ascentria.
Ascentria administers a broad range of affordable residential and community-based programs to meet the full spectrum of needs of older adults and their families. Presentation complements those offerings as a 122-bed rehabilitation and skilled care center.
The center is in the heart of Brighton, and serves the Boston, Brookline, Allston, Newton, Watertown, communities and beyond. Presentation’s services include a Center for Short-term Rehabilitation as well as traditional long-term care, rehabilitative therapies (physical, occupational and speech), social service, and care by ancillary providers such as podiatry, optometry, audiology, dentistry, geri-psych services, and hospice.
“This new acquisition will enable us to expand our elder services in the Boston market,” said Angela Bovill, president and CEO of Ascentria. “While our nonprofit is headquartered in Worcester, we are growing our presence in the Boston area. The needs are great in our region’s largest city, but so are the opportunities for our approach to elder care solutions.”
Presentation will continue to operate under the daily on-site management of Sheehan Health Group, LLC, which is known for innovative senior care settings, and shares Ascentria’s commitment to the highest standards of care and service. The fully renovated center has received an overall five star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, a rating system for health inspections, staffing and quality measures.
“We’re proud to work with Ascentria and believe this partnership will bring additional benefits to Presentation due to Ascentria’s large continuum of services and dedication to its mission,” stated Patrick Sheehan, manager of Sheehan Health Group.
In addition to its services for older adults, Ascentria serves children, youth and families; persons with developmental disabilities and mental illness; and refugees, including unaccompanied refugee minors.
