Former Odd Fellow & Rebekah Rehabilitation and Health Care Center to join Elderwood communityJanuary 30, 2018
Purchase enables Elderwood to expand in Niagara County region
LOCKPORT, NY – Elderwood at Lockport, formerly Odd Fellow & Rebekah Rehabilitation & Health Care Center, becomes the newest member of the Elderwood Care Community, effective Tuesday, January 30, 2018. The skilled nursing facility is located at 104 Old Niagara Road, Lockport, NY.
Last year the Odd Fellow & Rebekah’s Board of Directors actively sought a buyer that had the residents’ and local community’s interests at heart. Elderwood has a reputation for providing high-quality care, something that is reflected in its quality reporting measures and patient satisfaction scores.
“We are pleased to welcome Odd Fellow & Rebekah into the Elderwood family of companies. This acquisition allows Elderwood to expand its presence further into Niagara County,” Dr. Jeffrey Rubin, Co-Chief Executive Officer, said. “We plan to leverage the excellent reputation and care provided by the staff, and will work together to enhance the services provided at the facility.”
Fundamental to the company mission and values is the goal to ensure care remains local. Providing quality health care to local communities is important to Elderwood, as it focuses on building a deep and local presence in the markets they serve. Elderwood at Lockport will be led by Administrator Shari Hutchison. Along with the Wheatfield campus, Elderwood at Lockport will be the second addition of Elderwood facilities within Niagara County.
Elderwood provides skilled nursing care, specialized subacute care, rehabilitation, assisted living, independent living and memory care services in Western and Central New York, Rhode Island and Pennsylvania. Elderwood is part of a larger group of health care companies owned by Post Acute Partners, which operates pediatric facilities in Pennsylvania, Elderwood Health Plan managed long term care plan, Elderwood Transportation and Woodmark Pharmacy.
