Our Mission

Sherrill House is a not-for-profit, skilled nursing home maintained and operated by Sherrill House, Inc.

An extension of the ministry of Trinity Church, Copley Square, Boston, and the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts, its mission has been enhanced with the merger of assets of St. Luke's Home for Convalescents and the Frank Wood Convalescents Home.

Sherrill House provides high-quality medical, nursing and rehabilitation services on an inpatient basis to men and women without distinction as to race, creed, color or national origin. Sherrill House has established a referral system with other health care facilities in the area to ensure complete health services at all levels. It offers to local physicians and house staff a setting in which to render the best skilled care on a short-term or long-term basis. In its concern for the individual, Sherrill House aims to be as broad and diverse as the needs of those it serves.

Stakeholders, Not Shareholders

As a not-for-profit nursing & rehabilitation center, Sherrill House is responsible to our residents, patients, families, staff, donors, volunteers, physicians, and community partners. All earnings generated by Sherrill House, Inc. are reinvested in our organization for the benefit of these stakeholders, all of whom share our commitment to providing the highest quality services possible to those we serve.

The Not-for-Profit Difference

At Sherrill House, a not-for-profit institution, the focus is always on stakeholders and never on shareholders. We manage our financial resources in accordance with our mission, and constantly reinvest in our programs, residents and patients, and employees to ensure the best possible outcomes. We are concerned with quality, not earnings.

Research has shown that an emphasis on quality care rather than the bottom line has enabled not-for-profit long-term care providers to outperform investor-owned for-profit operations on average, both in terms of nursing staff and in annual state inspections. As a not-for-profit provider, Sherrill House represents a standard of care where the focus is always on those we serve.
