As they prepare to take over the North End Nursing Home & Rehab Center, management from new operator, Marquis Heath, hosted a small dinner at Lucia Ristorante to thank the local steering committee that fought to keep the facility from closing.
Norman Rokeach, CEO, told the group that the transition from Partners Healthcare / Spaulding are progressing well and they are working with both patients, families and staff. Operational transfer should take place later this year with building renovations starting shortly thereafter.
