Centers Health Care Officially Takes Over Focus Utica, Renaming it Oneida Center
BRONX, NY- January 18, 2018 — Centers Health Care , the largest and most complete post-acute health care continuum in the Northeast, with 42 skilled nursing and rehab facilities spanning New York, New Jersey and Rhode Island, has officially announced today that Focus Utica located at 1445 Kemble Street in Utica, NY, which was part of the Focus Family of Companies , is now members of the Centers Health Care family. Focus Otsego will now be known as Oneida Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing.
“We are proud to announce that the former Focus facility in Utica is now part of the Centers Health Care family,” said Centers CEO Kenny Rozenberg. “We’re thrilled to welcome with open arms the residents, their family members and our new staff to the Centers family and we rededicate these facilities to providing the finest care and service, which have made these two homes so vital to the communities they serve. Since last April, we’ve consulted with Focus management and leadership to help them introduce our proven levels of care and service. Now that the transition is complete in Utica, our highly respected brand of industry-leading best practices in care, service and customer commitment that defines who we are, is official at this location.”
All in all, this takeover applies to the nursing home and adult day care that will be joining the Centers Health Care family.
Centers Health Care and the Focus group entered into an agreement nine months ago whereby Centers Health Care would provide consulting services to Focus, designed to bring the operational and management expertise of the Centers organization to the Focus facilities. That consulting arrangement grew into an agreement to purchase the facilities which expands the Centers presence in the upstate New York region to nineteen skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities, as well as Managed Long Term Care, Adult Day Health Care, Home Care and Assisted Living. Centers acquired seven facilities in the central and eastern part of the state from Capital Living in September.
