Industry giant Genesis completes acquisition of Pheasant Wood
Pheasant Wood Care and Rehabilitation Center, a 99-bed skilled nursing center located in Peterborough, announced Friday that it is now officially a Genesis HealthCare center.
Earlier last week, Genesis HealthCare (Genesis), one of the nation’s largest providers of skilled nursing and rehabilitation care, completed the acquisition of Sun Healthcare Group, Inc.
Sun Healthcare Group, Inc. also operates SunBridge Healthcare, SunDance Rehabilitation, CareerStaff Unlimited, and SolAmor Hospice. SunBridge is the former operator of Pheasant Wood Care and Rehabilitation Center.
The merger of the two companies has created one of the largest skilled nursing providers in the country, with 422 skilled nursing centers in 29 states. It has also expanded Genesis HealthCare’s rehabilitation therapy business to more than 1,500 contracts in 46 states.
The center will now operate under a new name – Pheasant Wood Center – to better reflect the change in ownership. “This is an exciting time for Pheasant Wood Center,” said Administrator Kathleen Nichols. “We will still provide the same high-quality healthcare services to our patients and residents, but now look forward to benefiting from the expertise and support of Genesis.”
Genesis HealthCare offers a wide range of services from short-stay rehabilitation care and skilled nursing care to other specialty services including cardiac management, dialysis, wound care and Alzheimer’s dementia care.
Genesis’ regional management and clinical teams offer Pheasant Wood Center additional experts in dietary, pharmacy, dementia care, regulatory compliance, recreational therapy and more.
