South Cove Manor to open Quincy facility in May

South Cove Manor Nursing and Rehabilitation Center celebrated the completion of its Quincy facility on April 29. Residents are expected to move from the 120 Shawmut Avenue location to Quincy in late May.

“On behalf of the City of Quincy, I want to welcome South Cove Manor,” said Quincy Mayor Thomas Koch. “Congratulations on a job well done and God bless everybody.”

The Quincy facility at 288 Washington Street has capacity for 141 residents, up from 100 in Chinatown. Amenities at the 87,000 square-foot facility include a rehabilitation center, a hair salon with adjustable-height sinks and a learning center with reading materials.

“We have a large space compared to our current location, with neighborhoods for elders to meet around fireplaces and couches,” said Richard Lui, board chairman of South Cove Manor. “We have space for rehabilitation services, so our short-term patients get home sooner.”

The 28-year-old facility on Shawmut Avenue was sold to the Boston Chinese Evangelical Church. South Cove Manor will keep an office in the building.
