West Hartford's Hebrew HealthCare is looking to transfer its nursing home to another operator.
West Hartford's Hebrew HealthCare has emerged from bankruptcy with a revamped business model, balance sheet and a new name -- Hebrew Senior Care Specialized Health & Living Services.

The provider of senior assisted living and dementia services, adult day care and geriatric physician services announced Friday that a Connecticut bankruptcy judge approved its Chapter 11 plan of reorganization, discharging it from receivership.

Last December, then Hebrew Healthcare said it sold its 257-bed skilled nursing facility at 1 Abrams Boulevard in West Hartford to a unit of National Health Care Associates to stabilize its balance sheet.

Hebrew Center, a for-profit healthcare provider, and Hebrew Senior Care, a nonprofit senior care provider, will operate as separate organizations within the same building on Abrahms Boulevard. Gary Jones is interim president and CEO.

Under the new Hebrew Senior Care organizational umbrella are: The Hospital at Hebrew Senior Care; Connecticut Geriatric Specialty Group; Senior Day Center; Dementia Services; Assisted Living Service Agency; and Hoffman Summerwood.
