BCC Welcomes Presbyterian Senior Care To Its Continuum

Beechwood Continuing Care and Presbyterian Senior Care of Western New York (PSCWNY) have reached an agreement on terms in which PSCWNY communities, programs and properties will become part of the Beechwood continuum.

"We are excited about the opportunity to expand our footprint and scope of services by including the unique, high quality communities of PSCWNY in our continuum of care,” said Daniel O’Neill, Beechwood president. “This initiative is consistent with our mission and strategic vision to be the foremost provider of comprehensive skilled nursing, residential and community-based services in the Buffalo-Niagara area.”

PSCWNY will continue to operate the communities until all regulatory approvals are obtained. All employees in PSCWNY communities will retain their jobs and all residents will maintain their current living arrangements.

Karin Ziegler, PSCWNY president and CEO stated, “We are pleased that we will move forward with a not-for-profit like Beechwood whose reputation is stellar and whose culture, mission and faith-based history is so closely aligned to our own.“

PSCWNY was incorporated in 1957. It employs 85, and nearly 250 individuals reside in its communities.

Ken-Ton Presbyterian Village and Presbyterian Village at North Church are both independent living residences for seniors. Ken-Ton is an affordable housing HUD residence, with 150 apartments, 49 of which receive enriched housing services. Presbyterian Village has 78 market-rate, condo-style apartments in three buildings surrounded by a 2.5-acre nature preserve. Lockport Presbyterian Home is an adult care facility with 54 units in four building on its campus on High St., Lockport

Beechwood Continuing Care is a locally owned, not-for-profit senior care community in Amherst and Williamsville. It has been an integral part of Western New York, serving the housing and care needs of the senior community for more than 50 years. Affiliates include: Asbury Pointe, an independent retirement community; the Blocher Homes, assisted and enhanced living community; the Wesley Rehabilitation Center, short-term rehabilitative care; and the Beechwood Homes, a person-centered skilled nursing community.

According to O’Neill, “Having PSCWNY as part of our continuum will strengthen our ability to serve the emerging needs of seniors in WNY for years to come."
