Northgate Celebrates 35 Years of Caring for Others

Northgate Celebrates 35 Years of Caring for Others

WHO: Chairman, Frank J. McGuire along with residents, employees and family members from The McGuire Group’s Northgate Health Care Facility.

WHAT: We’re celebrating our 35th anniversary during National Nursing Home Week!

Thirty-five years of history has brought about a lot of changes both in the world and in our own back yard! For The McGuire Group, 1981 marked the opening of Northgate Health Care Facility, a 200-bed skilled nursing facility located in North Tonawanda. As our fourth health care facility at the time, it met the growing need for quality care in the northtowns area.

In addition to the major changes taking place in our company in 1981, other events that gathered headlines included: Pope John Paul II being wounded by a gunman; Ronald Reagan taking the oath as 40th president of the US, MTV going on-air around the clock and the FDA approving the use of Aspartame as an artificial sweetener.

Our anniversary celebration will include a visit from our Chairman Frank J. McGuire, along with musical entertainment, refreshments, champagne and chocolate fountains, hors d’ oeuvres and story boards featuring photos over the decades.

Since our opening 35 years ago, Northgate Health Care Facility has undergone renovations that have taken it from a traditional skilled nursing facility to a state-of-the-art rehabilitation center offering subacute and outpatient rehabilitation as well as a dedicated memory care, hospice services and respite/short-term care. It is now one of five local health care facilities operated by The McGuire Group.

WHEN: Thursday, May 12, 2016 from 2:00 – 3:00 pm.

WHERE: Northgate Health Care Facility, 7264 Nash Road, North Tonawanda (at the corner of Nash Road and Niagara Falls Blvd.).
