Good Shepherd to have new owner

Catholic Charities New Hampshire has sold Good Shepherd Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in Jaffrey to MED Healthcare Partners.

Catholic Charities announced the sale on Thursday, along with plans “to commit significant resources for vulnerable seniors across the Monadnock region.”

“Caring for seniors in our communities has long been an important part of the mission of Catholic Charities,” Thomas Blonski, president and CEO of Catholic Charities, said in a press release. “CCNH sought a company that would preserve the same level of care Good Shepherd clients receive today, including maintaining the 100 current staff members known for providing a high level of personalized and compassionate care.”

Catholic Charities said MED Healthcare Partners was identified as a qualified, well-respected company, which operates more than 100 nursing homes and rehabilitation facilities across the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and Midwest.

Catholic Charities also said MED and Catholic Charities have “created a transition plan to ensure all Good Shepherd staff retain their employment status and clients continue to receive high-quality care.”

Additionally Catholic Charities plans to commit $1 million in resources administered through a trust that will provide an annual distribution to fund services and care for vulnerable seniors in the Monadnock region.

“MED is deeply committed to offering seniors the highest quality care in each of our locations,” Mordy Lahasky, president of MED Healthcare Partners, said in the announcement. “We are looking forward to continuing CCNH’s long tradition of serving those in the Monadnock region and contributing to the fabric of this community.”

Catholic Charities has owned and operated Good Shepherd Rehabilitation and Nursing Center since 1990 and Good Shepherd has earned a four-star rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.

Catholic Charities said it plans to continue to provide a wide range of senior care throughout the state at its six other skilled nursing facilities, which offer short-term rehabilitation care, memory care, assisted living, independent living and long-term senior care.

Catholic Charities said it has no plans to sell any of its other facilities.
