NEEDHAM, Mass. - Aug. 29, 2014 - PRLog -- Needham, MA– Wingate Healthcare (, the Northeast’s premiere provider of healthcare and hospitality for seniors, today announced that Wingate at Belvidere (Lowell), Wingate at Haverhill and Wingate at Worcester have been approved to participate in the Tufts Health Plan network. These skilled nursing facilities are now accepting Tufts insurance for short and long-term care as well as in-patient rehabilitation.

Statistics show that not only will over 40% of people require nursing home care at some point in their lifetime, but one third of all nursing home residents pay all of their own costs. Medicare doesn’t always cover what’s required and given high medical needs, the cost of long-term care can be considerable.

“By adding Tufts to our list of accepted medical insurers, we are making it even easier for people in Massachusetts to take advantage of our award-winning skilled nursing services,” said Scott Schuster, Founder & President of Wingate Healthcare. “We want to help families reduce the large financial burden that’s often associated with receiving high-quality healthcare.”

One of Lowell’s only five-star skilled nursing facilities, Wingate at Belvidere ( delivers a full spectrum of healthcare services operated by a dedicated staff, nearly 40% of whom have been there for more than 5 years. They are known for their state-of-the-art Pulmonary Program for those needing help recovering from respiratory conditions or with tracheotomy’s. Located in a tranquil setting, Wingate at Haverhill ( is a newly renovated center specializing in secure Memory Care as well as short-term and orthopedic rehabilitation. Wingate at Worcester ( is one of the few skilled nursing centers in Massachusetts to specialize in complex medical needs including brain injury recovery and ventilator management. Patients and families travel from all over the state to partake in their effective recovery programs.

Wingate Healthcare also accepts many other insurers, such as Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Commonwealth Care Alliance, Fallon, Harvard Pilgrim, Health New England, Neighborhood Health Plan and United. For more information, visit
