Elderwood files plans for two more Weinberg units

 – Reporter, Buffalo Business First

Elderwood has filed applications with the state for two more business lines at Weinberg Campus as the company continues the process to take over operations at the Getzville campus.

Elderwood’s owners announced last fall they would take over five nonprofit corporations that operate on the North Forest Road campus, but each must be approved separately by the state Department of Health.

This week, applications were filed for the Menorah Campus Adult Home, a licensed home care services agency; and for Dosberg Manor Adult Home & Assisted Living, a 96-bed adult home with 30-bed assisted living program. When complete, the agency will become known as Elderwood Home Care at Getzville.

They follow the application filed in February for the 180-bed Rosa Coplon site. The buyer is a limited liability company controlled by Warren Cole and Dr. Jeffrey Rubin, who operate a network of skilled nursing and assisted living sites across the state. The duo last fall signed an asset purchase agreement with Weinberg to purchase the Rosa Coplon Jewish Home nursing facility, Dosberg Manor; Forest Creek Independent Living Facility; Garden House Assisted Living; Meadows Assisted Living; the Town Square for Aging facility and a certified home health agency program.

Until the process is completed, Weinberg management continues to operate all business on the campus, with oversight by its boards of directors. Both parties have yet to disclose the terms of the deal.
