JGS Lifecare Welcomes Northeast Rehab Associates, Inc. to their Longmeadow Campus.


JGS Lifecare, a not-for-profit healthcare system serving seniors and their families in western Massachusetts for over 110 years, is pleased to announce the addition of Northeast Rehab Associates, Inc. to services offered at JGS Lifecare, Inc. on their Longmeadow campus. Northeast Rehab, a specialized sub-acute rehab service operated by Registered Physical Therapist, Cherie Stack, for the past 25 years, most of those years spent in Agawam, Massachusetts, will operate out of The Sosin Center for Rehabilitation, located at the Leavitt Family Jewish Home at 770 Converse Street in Longmeadow. Both organizations are committed to the delivery of the highest quality of sub-acute rehab services.

“JGS Lifecare, an affiliate of Legacy Lifecare since 2018, is always seeking ways to enhance the services we offer to our residents, families and the local community”, commented Mary-Anne Schelb, Director of Business Development for Legacy Lifecare’s western Massachusetts market. “We have a full continuum of eldercare services located on 23 acres on Converse Street that the community knows well and has confidence in. The addition of Northeast Rehab to our family of services is a mutually enhancing partnership that will benefit not only our residents, but their families as well as our local community.”

Northeast Rehab has specialized in orthopedic rehab for over two decades. Over the last 5 years care has expanded to include cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation. Stack’s longtime staff will come with her, offering continuity of care and a seamless recovery for all of their patients.

Patients of Northeast Rehab will benefit from the person-centered approach of the Green House model of small house care that has become one of the hallmarks of Sosin Center for Rehabilitation. Stack, like JGS Lifecare, is always looking to expand services to better serve the community. She will now be able to partner with the JGS rehab staff to serve even more specialty needs at the Home going forward.

“We are very excited to welcome Northeast Rehab Associates, Inc. to our campus of care”, adds Rob Whitten, LHNA, Administrator of the Leavitt Family Jewish Home at JGS Lifecare. “It was clear from the start that we share a similar commitment to providing the highest quality of rehab services, and that our environment and how we deliver care is a great match.  This partnership is very exciting for our campus and the people we serve.”

JGS Lifecare will be scheduling an open house in June to welcome the community to see the changes first hand. Separate physician tours will also be available. Please reach out to Mary-Anne Schelb for more information at 413-310-4693 or
