The Jenkins’ organization opened its doors in 1958, due in large part to an expansive fund-raising effort by a group of dedicated Methodist citizens in Watertown. Over the ensuing years, the organization experienced consistent growth – both in size and scope of services. Expansion projects in the ‘70s, ‘80s, ‘90s and today have increased the licensed bed capacity of the skilled nursing facility to its present level of 162 to include a complete rehabilitation program for inpatient and outpatient care.
During that same time frame, the visionary Board of Directors of Jenkins Living Center, Inc., also added to the scope of services to include Senior Apartments, Assisted Living Services, a secure unit for Alzheimer’s care, and an inpatient/outpatient Rehabilitation Program. Today, Jenkins Living Center, Inc. offers a full continuum of care allowing our tenants and residents to “age in place” under the Jenkins’ umbrella of services.
