3. The news has spread about the North End Nursing Home & Rehab Center Closing, with the company maintaining that the consolidation will help prep for future.  Partners is planning on consolidating two Spaulding nursing homes the North End and West Roxbury in a new location in Brighton next year. The move will result in a drop in total beds from 210 to 123, with a new management system to have most of the people coming in as short stay patients. “The exception is the group of people in our North End facility who have been there for up to 20 years who … entered the facility to age in place. We will offer those people the option of coming with us to the new facility in Brighton when we have it open,” said David Storto, Partners Continuing Care and Spaulding Rehabilitation Network President. Read the full article at the Boston Business Journal.
