November 17, 2023

South Dennis Healthcare has closed, according to Director of Social Services Mayla Secola.

On Thursday, staff cleaned and packed boxes at the 128-bed nursing home at 1 Love Lane, said Secola.

“We rehomed 82 residents in 32 days,” said Secola. “The most important part is getting patients situated in new homes. The next step is the actual closure, packing things, equipment has to go … we’re at the end now.”

One Love Lane South Dennis LLC sold the site previously known as Eagle Pond Rehabilitation and Living Center to Housing Assistance Corporation for $4.3 million, according to a deed recorded with the Barnstable County Registry of Deeds on Sept. 28. South Dennis Healthcare is operated by Woburn-based Next Step Healthcare.
