THE SANCTA MARIA STORY

All of our beds are Medicare and Medicaid certified.

As a member of the Catholic Health Care Association, we adhere to the Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services. As a result, you will find a prescribed set of values and beliefs is intrinsically part of our management and operational style, which include:

Dignity of the human being
Sanctity of life
Compassion
The fostering of comfort and wellness

Sancta Maria Nursing Facility has achieved the Joint Commission’s Medicare/Medicaid Certification Long Term Care Accreditation, and is also an affiliate member of Covenant Health Systems, a Catholic health care system sponsoring hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living residences and other health and elder services throughout New England.

A HISTORY OF CARING

Quality personalized care, given with compassion and understanding, is an ongoing tradition here at Sancta Maria. Originally founded as a hospital in 1948 on Memorial Drive in Cambridge, Sancta Maria was well known in greater Boston as the ‘Red Sox’ hospital because so many members of the team—including Ted Williams, Tony Conigliaro, and Walt Dropo—were cared for at Sancta Maria.

The hospital was relocated to the present site in 1968, and converted to a skilled nursing facility in 1989. As a former hospital, our facility is fully-equipped and offers a number of built-in amenities not commonly found in nursing homes, such as a central oxygen system, comprehensive nursing stations on each floor and on-site examination rooms. This added functionality, along with some of the additional services located on-site, often provides enhanced levels of convenience to our residents.
