Legacy Lifecare announced that it will provide management, operational development and consulting assistance to Sisters of Charity-Halifax’s campus in Wellesley, which includes the Elizabeth Seton Residence, a skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility, and the Marillac Residence, a Level IV Rest Home. Legacy Lifecare, a nonprofit management resources collaborative, also manages Chelsea Jewish Lifecare of Chelsea and Peabody, JGS Lifecare of Longmeadow, and Deutsches Altenheim in West Roxbury. Legacy Lifecare began providing management services on January 1, 2021.
“We are excited to partner with Legacy Lifecare,” said Sister Margaret Mary Fitzpatrick, Congregational Leader of the Sisters of Charity-Halifax. “By joining a network of nonprofit elder care organizations, we are better prepared to deal with today’s increasingly complex healthcare landscape while retaining our mission and community focus. We are confident this collaboration will strongly benefit our residents, employees, and surrounding community.”
With this new partnership, the Sisters of Chatity-Halifax (Wellesley) will continue to oversee their branding, strategic planning, and fundraising. Legacy Lifecare will provide executive leadership, day-to-day support, and general management services. Both the Marillac Residence and the Elizabeth Seton Residence are highly regarded entities in the Greater Boston area.
“Like all our members, Sisters of Charity-Halifax (Wellesley) is committed to proving the highest possible caliber of care,” said Adam Berman, President and CEO of Legacy Lifecare. “We are thrilled to partner with this esteemed nonprofit organization. I look forward to working with their talented leadership team, headed by Lori Ferrante, administrator of the Elizabeth Seton Residence and Sister Judith Breen, administrator of the Marillac Residence.”
The Sisters of Charity-Halifax have devoted themselves to a life of joyful service, through education, health care, social service and pastoral ministry. Their sisters have served in hospitals, schools and parishes, across Canada and in Massachusetts and New York, Peru and the Dominican Republic.
Originally built for Sisters who needed nursing care, the Elizabeth Seton Residence opened its doors to the public when it was granted a license to operate a skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility in 1980. Marillac Residence, formerly a Rest Home for religious women only, was granted a license to open its facility to the general public in 2017. Both are proud to welcome people of all religious traditions, cultural, ethnic and racial backgrounds to its residences. Their shared mission calls them “to provide compassionate, caring service and to create an atmosphere where all feel welcome and respected.”
