The Queens-based company, which has a track record of improving underperforming nursing homes through strong leadership, training and capital improvements, renovations and equipment upgrades, purchased the facility for an undisclosed amount.

Mohawk Valley Health Center, which is located at 99 Sixth Avenue, will be renamed The Grand Rehabilitation and Nursing at Mohawk Valley and will become one of numerous nursing homes across the state affiliated with The Grand Healthcare System. Other properties are located in Albany, Columbia, Delaware, Dutchess, Genesee, Madison, Oneida, and Otsego counties, as well as the borough of Queens.

“We are thrilled to add this facility to our growing roster of New York-based properties,” said Jeremy B. Strauss, CEO of The Grand Healthcare System. “Mohawk Valley Health Center has a long and proud history and we look forward to elevating the quality and access to care for local residents.”


“Today marks a new beginning for this facility,” added The Grand Healthcare System’s Regional Vice President Bruce Gendron, a resident of nearby New Hartford. “My leadership team and I understand the needs of residents living in the Mohawk Valley. Together, we will endeavor to create a facility where state-of-the-art rehabilitation and nursing care is coupled with a luxury experience for guests and their loved ones.”

Founded in 2014, The Grand Healthcare System strives to be the preferred choice for rehab and recovery. It offers a full continuum of premium healthcare and specialty care services, including amputee therapy, bariatric rehabilitation, cardiac therapy, complex medical care programs, hip repair and joint replacement recovery programs, IV antibiotic therapy, medical nutrition therapy, and stroke rehabilitation.

“In the months to come, we will examine how else we can be of service to the community,” added Gendron. “Our team is well connected with the hospitals in the area and we will explore the possibility of adding specialty programs based on the needs of the region.”

The rebranding of The Grand Rehabilitation and Nursing at Mohawk Valley will begin with new interior and exterior signage and new uniforms for staff. Guests will also have access to hospitality features offered at other Grand properties such as a personalized menu, concierge service, courtesy shuttle service and iPad program to communicate with family and loved ones any time of day or night.

The facility has a staff of more than 200 employees.
