Benjamin Healthcare – Philosophy
We view each person as an integrated whole, embracing many roles. Each person is an individual and a member of the community.
We believe that by treating people with dignity and respect, each person will realize their potential for growth and development.
Health is more than the absence of disease. It is the enjoyment of physical, emotional, and spiritual fitness. We believe that anyone can enjoy the spirit of health, despite the presence of illness. Benjamin Healthcare supports the experience of well-being.
Benjamin Healthcare Center also provides health care for residents through an interdisciplinary team approach. We advocate for residents when they are unable to do so for themselves, and measure the quality of care by the highest professional standards.
We hold that the delivery of this care is best realized through excellence, compassion, and genuine caring. All which we deliver in collaboration with our residents and their families.

Benjamin Healthcare center, located atop Mission Hill, is a non-profit skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, which services the greater Boston community. Attorney Edgar Benjamin founded Resthaven in 1927 and donated it to the community as a charitable corporation dedicated to: “providing a home or shelter for and to otherwise assist all people without regard to race, creed or color.” Today, Benjamin Healthcare center continues this proud tradition and remains a leader in its service to culturally diverse populations.
