Jewish Healthcare Center purchases JF&CS building
WORCESTER – Jewish Healthcare Center (JHC) has purchased the Jewish Family & Children’s Service (JF&CS) building located at 646 Salisbury St. in Worcester.
To accommodate the growth of its Hospice and Home Rehabilitation programs, JHC will move its administrative offices across the street from its their current location at 629 Salisbury St. sometime this spring.
The new location will hold approximately 20 administrative employees and their cars.
This will be a Monday through Friday operation, within the hours of 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
“This is a perfect relocation for the administrative staff of JHC Hospice and Home Care,” said Steven Willens, CEO of Jewish Healthcare Center. “In keeping with the residential nature of the building, there will be no clinical activities. All Hospice and Home Care services are provided by therapists wherever the client resides.”
The staff of JF&CS, meanwhile, will relocate to an office space in Worcester.
JF&CS will continue to serve Central Massachusetts with a variety of programs including support groups and home visiting for new moms, adoption, information and referral for people with disabilities and their families, support for military-connected families, and school-based consultation.
“Our commitment to Worcester and the Boroughs is stronger than ever,” said Rimma Zelfand, CEO of JF&CS. “We are eager to continue our collaboration with the Jewish Federation of Central Mass. to identify needs in the Jewish community and provide services to support families and older adults.”
Steven Schimmel, executive director of Jewish Federation of Central Mass., supports the move.
“It is so fortunate that the leadership at these three organizations (JFCM, JF&CS and JHC) were able to come together to find a great way to prepare for the future while continuing to keep this important location within the Jewish community,” he said.
