Sacred Heart Home, a long-term care and rehabilitation facility in the Clifton neighborhood, has been renamed Nazareth Home-Clifton.
Nazareth Home, a similar facility in the Highlands, acquired the Clifton facility in 2016 and recently decided to change its name because “the two facilities have merged a philosophy of caring and culture, one that has emerged as a single mission,” according to an announcement from the home released last week.
“The Clifton campus continues to be a compassionate and welcoming community, providing health and wellness services for adults and families, with an intentional focus on hospitality and excellence,” said Mary N. Haynes, president of Nazareth Home. “It is important to demonstrate to the community that we are not two separate entities, but are one ministry, one mission and one purpose.”
The former Sacred Heart Home, 2120 Payne St., was established in 1892 as Sacred Heart Convalescent Home. It was sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy when it was purchased by Nazareth Home. The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth now sponsor both facilities. It offers skilled care, memory care and short-term rehabilitation.
Nazareth Home, 2000 Newburg Road, is a 168-bed long-term care home and rehabilitation center that offers short-term rehabilitation, personal care, memory care and skilled-care. It was established in 1976.
