Regency Gardens Nursing Center and St. Joseph’s Wayne Hospital; Perfect Neighbors!

An industry colleague asked me again today (or was it yesterday? It is afterall 1 am on Wednesday, as I write these lines), whether it is true what people say about St. Joseph’s Hospital being located “in our backyard.”

My response was unequivocal; YES IT IS TRUE!

In fact, here is a photo taken during the summer time in our magnificent and sprawling backyard, at Regency Gardens.

See that tall building right in the backdrop?


It is quite literally in our backyard and you could walk several paces and you’ll be in their spacious parking lot.

We have enjoyed a wonderful partnership with this hospital over the years and have worked in seamless collaboration and in good faith to care for their patients!

Artificial Intelligence Is An Emerging Market In Healthcare?

Artificial intelligence (AI) will play a major role in healthcare digital transformation, according to new research.

The study, “Human Amplification in the Enterprise,” surveyed more than 1,000 business leaders from organizations of more than 1,000 employees, with $500 million or more annual revenue and from a range of sectors, all in the U.S.

Survey respondents from the healthcare sector indicated that the following AI-supported activities will play a significant role in their transformations: Machine learning (77%), robotic automation (61%), institutionalization of enterprise knowledge using AI (59%), cognitive AI-led processes or tasks (50%) and automated predictive analytics (47%).

The jury is out on all of this, but very interesting food for thought.


Regency Gardens In Wayne Participates in St. Joseph’s Golf Event!

I am so proud to share with you some follow up photos from our golf event yesterday with the St. Joseph’s Healthcare System!

As a member and sponsor of their ‘President’s Circle Club,’ this is an event we eagerly look forward to each year.

The golf outing also presents the hospital with an opportunity to recognize the Regency Gardens Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, not only for the unrivaled care we provide for their patients, but also for the philanthropic efforts of our President, David Gross (who happens to be an accomplished and avid golfer), to give back to the community and to support the hospital foundation and its work.

Here are some photos from the event!
