N.J. CCRC Affiliates with Springpoint Senior Living

Winchester Gardens, a continuing care retirement community in Maplewood, N.J., recently announced an agreement to affiliate with Springpoint Senior Living.


“Winchester Gardens is a premiere senior living community with a long history of service to seniors in Northern New Jersey,” said Gary Puma, CEO of Springpoint, in a statement. “This affiliation is in keeping with our efforts to expand the Springpoint mission of providing high quality housing and healthcare to seniors throughout the state. Winchester Gardens’ residents can be assured that they will continue to receive the highest level of service as Springpoint assumes the management and operation of the community.”

Last year, Winchester Garden’s board of trustees began a strategic planning process to determine how best to position the community for the future. The CCRC reviewed a number of senior living organizations before agreeing to a affiliate with Springpoint.

“An increasing trend in the senior living industry is for single-site communities like ours to affiliate with a larger organization,” said Greg Rogerino, president and CEO of Winchester Gardens. “We felt that our compatible missions and cultures make Springpoint uniquely qualified to assure the continued success of Winchester Gardens.”

The affiliation is subject to certain regulatory approvals including the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs and the New Jersey Department of Health, but the transition is expected to be completed during the next few weeks. —AG
