Mohawk Valley Health Center in Ilion has new name, owner in acquisition deal

ILION — The Mohawk Valley Health Center in Ilion is now known as the Grand Rehabilitation & Nursing at Mohawk Valley after a New York City–based health-care organization acquired the facility.

The Grand Healthcare System of Queens purchased the 120-bed nursing facility for an “undisclosed amount,” according to a Grand Healthcare news release issued Aug. 7. The organization also didn’t release any additional terms of its acquisition agreement.

The Mohawk Valley facility provides rehabilitation and nursing services to patients who require short- or long-term nursing care following hospitalization. The facility has a staff of more than 200 employees.


Grand Healthcare says it has a track record of “improving underperforming” nursing homes through “strong” leadership, training and capital improvements, renovations and equipment upgrades.

The Grand Rehabilitation & Nursing at Mohawk Valley, which is located at 99 Sixth Avenue in Ilion, becomes one of “numerous” nursing homes across the state affiliated with the Grand Healthcare system.Other properties are located in Madison, Oneida, Albany, Columbia, Delaware, Dutchess, Genesee, and Otsego counties, as well as the borough of Queens, Grand Healthcare said.

 “We are thrilled to add this facility to our growing roster of New York-based properties,” Jeremy Strauss, CEO of the Grand Healthcare System, said. “Mohawk Valley Health Center has a long and proud history and we look forward to elevating the quality and access to care for local residents.”

The rebranding of the Grand Rehabilitation & Nursing at Mohawk Valley will begin with new interior and exterior signage and new uniforms for staff. Guests will also have access to hospitality features offered at other Grand properties such as a personalized menu, concierge service, courtesy shuttle service, and iPad program to communicate with family and loved ones any time of day or night.

“Today marks a new beginning for this facility,” Bruce Gendron, regional VP of the Grand Healthcare System and a resident of New Hartford, said in the release.

“My leadership team and I understand the needs of residents living in the Mohawk Valley. Together, we will endeavor to create a facility where state-of-the-art rehabilitation and nursing care is coupled with a luxury experience for guests and their loved ones,” said Gendron.

Founded in 2014, the Grand Healthcare System offers health care and specialty-care services that include amputee therapy, bariatric rehabilitation, cardiac therapy, “complex” medical-care programs, hip repair and joint-replacement recovery programs, IV antibiotic therapy, medical-nutrition therapy, and stroke rehabilitation.

“In the months to come, we will examine how else we can be of service to the community,” said Gendron. “Our team is well connected with the hospitals in the area and we will explore the possibility of adding specialty programs based on the needs of the region.”
