The Morrison Communities: Two Campuses & A Name Change

WHITEFIELD — A new name has been chosen to better reflect the shared mission and values of Morrison Skilled Nursing Facility, Sartwell Place Assisted Living and Summit by Morrison. Renamed The Morrison Communities, the three entities comprise a unique senior living community on two campuses offering complete care for every stage of an individual’s senior years.

From its earliest beginnings in 1903 as The Morrison Hospital, the organization has grown to meet the changing priorities of the North Country region by advancing innovative programs that have been supported by an exceptional staff offering quality care for residents in a homelike setting.

Several years ago, the organization’s Board of Trustees determined that there was both a need and a desire for additional and affordable senior living options to complement the Morrison Skilled Nursing Facility, Sartwell Place Assisted Living, and the Rehabilitation Therapy services already being provided at The Morrison’s 6 Terrace Street location.

The vision was to create a new campus that would include independent living cottages and apartments, assisted living apartments, and a memory care studios, along with spacious dining rooms and warm and welcoming cultural, recreational and community room spaces. With the vision realized, Summit by Morrison was completed last year and is being enjoyed by its new residents.

“As our two campuses are inextricably connected, both financially and through the services provided, the Board of Trustees agreed that a new name linking the two would best describe our senior living community,” said Brian Fogg, President of the Board of Trustees. “Although our name has changed, our commitment to our residents, staff and community has not, and as The Morrison Communities we look forward to another 100+ years of serving our region’s seniors.”

The Morrison Communities is a non-profit 501©(3) charitable community that has been providing quality healthcare to residents of New Hampshire’s North Country since 1903. For more information, go to
