John Scott House Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in Braintree, Massachusetts, announces plans for a fresh, modern look with planned renovations that emphasize resident comfort, safety and convenience. Replacing the original Victorian that was once home to the Welch family, as well as Welch Healthcare and Retirement Group’s first residents, allows for a remodeled front entrance and creation of new outdoor resident patio, in addition to interior updates.

An expanded parking area with a new covered drive-up main entrance is being added for the convenience of residents, family and friends. A complete refurbishment of all resident rooms and common areas, and life safety systems is already underway. For the comfort of residents who require rehabilitation, the Welch Group nursing center is relocating the rehabilitation gym to the newly created post-acute short-term rehabilitation unit and adding a new dedicated living room and dining room.

“John Scott House symbolizes our company’s early history and the pioneering vision of my parents, Thomas and Rita Welch,” says Richard M. Welch, president of Welch Healthcare and Retirement Group. In 1949, the John Scott House was established by Thomas and Rita M. Welch after they customized their two-story home in Braintree to provide care and health services to area seniors. “My parents, with their modest 11-bed nursing home, found themselves at the forefront of an industry in its infancy, effecting changes that shaped the industry to this day,” adds Welch.

Today, John Scott House Rehabilitation and Nursing Center offers residents and their families the best of both worlds – a center rich in tradition and quality short-term rehabilitative and skilled nursing care. For 65-years, John Scott House has been a part of the Braintree community providing high-level rehabilitative, medical, and nursing care on a short- or long-term basis. The Welch Group skilled nursing center consistently receives high marks from state agencies that are designed to oversee the quality of nursing homes throughout Massachusetts.

In addition, John Scott was recently awarded The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™ for Nursing Care Center Accreditation as well as the organization’s new Post-Acute Care Certification, which demonstrates the facility’s commitment to the highest level of care for its patients and residents—going beyond state and federal requirements.
