Vincentian has acquired Schenley Gardens Senior Living Community, which has 164 units in Pittsburgh’s Oakland neighborhood.

In the next year, Vincentian intends to invest more than $1 million in capital improvements, while providing professional development, training and career advancement opportunities for current employees.

Schenley Gardens employs approximately 80 people, but Vincentian expects that number to grow as the facility welcomes new residents who need personal and memory care.

Schenley Gardens becomes Vincentian’s third personal care home in Allegheny County and joins a health care system that serves more than 2,000 seniors annually, providing independent living, personal care, memory care, short-term rehabilitation and skilled nursing. The acquisition comes the same week that Vincentian cut the ribbon on Terrace Place at Vincentian, a 91-unit independent living 55+ community in McCandless.

Vincentian, a not-for-profit health care and human services organization, coordinates three senior care communities in the Greater Pittsburgh area, plus two child care centers, two independent living communities and a charitable foundation. The system was founded in the Catholic tradition in 1924 and is sponsored by the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth.
