Our history

Looking back, thinking ahead

Since our founding in 1996, we are proud to say that Centers Health Care has added to our group more than 3,000 “at risk” skilled nursing beds, beds that were located in homes which were struggling to provide quality care, and in many cases were in imminent risk of failure. The thought of displacing so many vulnerable people has and continues to drive our growth in this industry, rescuing home after home and turning them into premium facilities.
