Kingston Center - The Newest Member of the Centers Health Care Family

October 1, 2016

As featured in the Narragansett Times

As of Oct. 1, the Shady Acres Nursing Home has received a new name along with new management.

The nursing home, renamed Kingston Center for Rehabilitation and Health Care, is now under the management of Centers Health Care. Bringing Shady Acres into the Centers Health Care family provided a means by which the previous ownership could ensure that their residents were well cared for.

Initially, there will be few changes to the facility; the first step will be to assess the condition of the staff and services provided at the facility.

Many important changes that will be made aren’t visible to the casual observer. Clinical training to be sure the staff maintains the level of expertise we require will be one of the first areas to see some changes. We want to be sure that our team is up to date with the most current care protocols.

The building will also be evaluated to determine whether any upgrades are needed. The Shady Acres Nursing Home is the third facility in Rhode Island to be taken over by Centers Health Care, with Bannister House in Providence being the first.

The future of Kingston Center is bright. We’re committed to ensuring that our residents enjoy a vibrant lifestyle.
