Chelsea Jewish Foundation and Aviv Centers for Living to merge
CJF serves more than 500 individuals through skilled nursing and short-term rehab, along with assisted living, independent living and home care. Aviv offers assisted living, skilled nursing, adult day health, short-term rehabilitation, and geriatric care management for more than 300 residents and patients.
The Chelsea Jewish Foundation management team will operate the combined organization. Aviv's individual facilities — the Waldfogel Health Center, Shapiro-Rudolph Adult Day Health, and the Woodbridge Assisted Living complex — will all retain their names.
“Chelsea Jewish is honored to carry on the responsibility for Aviv's 70-year commitment to providing the highest quality healthcare, living options and support services for seniors,” said Barry Berman, Chelsea Jewish Foundation's CEO. “Joining these two organizations together makes a great deal of sense at this point in time, given the complexities of a vastly-changed and evolving healthcare system.”
