Letter from our Administrator

Dear Friends,
Welcome to Saint Joseph’s Rehabilitation and Residence in Portland, a skilled nursing facility that is dedicated to the care, support and rehabilitation of its residents. As caregivers, we are committed to providing unique care for each of the individuals and families we serve. Saint Joseph’s, which became a subsidiary of the non-profit Maine Medical Center in 2017, has been serving residents in our community with caring for the body, mind, and spirit since 1975.

Saint Joseph’s creates a community of supports for each of its residents. We provide nursing care that utilizes innovation and technology while upholding the dignity of all living persons. In April 2016, the facility received the designation of “deficiency free” from the Maine Department of Health and Human Services, a distinction of excellence awarded to only 12% of U.S. nursing homes. In August of 2017, we received a 4-Star (out of 5) rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS). Also in August of 2017, we were selected from a nationwide pool of nominees to receive the Optima Award for Excellence in Resident-Focused Care, which was awarded by I Advance Senior Care.

On this website, you can find resources describing the many services available at Saint Joseph’s, including:

Skilled Care and Rehabilitation Services: The medical/nursing staff and rehabilitation team of licensed physical, occupational, and speech therapists are committed to restoring health and providing patients with the skills needed to transition from the hospital to their homes.
Long-Term Care: The facility offers 24-hour licensed nursing care with respect for the quality of life and personal preferences of each resident.
Memory Care: A program designed to provide a safe, comfortable, and nurturing environment to serve the needs of those with dementia or memory loss, and to support their loved ones on this difficult journey.

We hope this website begins to give you a sense of our staff’s remarkable dedication to our residents. We invite you to tour our facility and meet our caregivers. The care you will observe at Saint Joseph’s Rehabilitation and Residence is defined by compassion and dedication to those we serve.
