Benchmark Senior Living, Stamford Health System Announce Transfer of Ownership of Edgehill
Massachusetts-based Benchmark Purchases Stamford Continuing Care Retirement Community
Based in Wellesley, Mass., Benchmark is the largest provider of senior living services in New England, with more than 45 communities from Connecticut to Maine, and has been called the “best of the best” when it comes to operating successful communities for the past 14 years.
“With senior care as the focus of our business, we’re dedicated to providing exceptional service and personal care that Edgehill residents have come to expect. We’ll continue advancing this philosophy we believe in wholeheartedly, one that is perfectly aligned with that of the former owner, Stamford Health,” said Benchmark’s founder, chairman and CEO Tom Grape, who is originally from Fairfield County. “I’m proud to be able to expand our commitment to seniors throughout my home state and all of New England.”
“We’re working closely with Benchmark to ensure this transition goes as smoothly as possible,” said Kathleen Silard, Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer at SHS. “We’ve had a great relationship with Edgehill’s residents and families, and our goal is to maintain those relationships with members of the healthcare community we serve.”
According to Silard, Benchmark is a well-suited successor to Stamford Health System for a number of reasons. The company has a reputation for providing quality care, a deep-rooted tradition of providing resident-centered services, a strong New England focus, demonstrated success in operating numerous communities in Connecticut and a solid financial background.
