Centers Health Care Gives Back to Seven Selected Organizations With a $2500 Grant Within Each of Centers’ Regions
The Company Celebrates Its 25th Year of Existence by Thanking Non-Profits from the Heart
NEW YORK, NY- February 1, 2022 — Bronx-based Centers Health Care, the largest and
most complete post-acute health care continuum in New York, with 49 skilled nursing and rehab
facilities across the northeast and Midwest, is giving back to the community beginning at the end
of January and going through February 2022 by donating a $2500 check to seven selected
organizations who provide a heartfelt service for human and animal life. Steve Carr, Chief Sales
Officer for Centers Health Care, had his team reach out to a vast number of organizations and the
seven were chosen based on votes within in each Centers Health Care community where people
would fill out a card and drop it in a box at various Centers Health Care locations.
“In our 25th year as a company offering the highest level of post-acute care and rehabilitation
throughout the northeast and Midwest, we felt it was time to give back to organizations who also
care, but in their own specific way,” said Carr. “These seven organizations fill a huge need in
the lives of people and animals. Helping them goes such a long way for people in America and
it’s all from the heart.”
The seven selected are within the seven regions that Centers Health Care offers the most
comprehensive state-of-the-art post-acute care and rehabilitation in four states including New
York, New Jersey, Rhode Island and Kansas.

working people and the less fortunate receive a monthly check where they can shop for
groceries, pay bills, etc. without having to neglect their kids.

the community for the less fortunate in Wichita. Their mission is to serve nutritional meals and
