This year we were planning our 150th Anniversary Gala. We had moved the date from June to October due to the Covid-19 virus. After much discussion, we are canceling the event for this year.  The virus is forefront in everyone’s mind…will it come back, will gatherings over 200 be allowed, how do we handle social distancing and more. At this time, we are unsure of what plans we will make to celebrate this momentous event, but we will keep everyone posted.

“No one sick, hungry or in need, regardless of creed or condition, should ever be turned from its door.”

These are the words from the original constitution of the House of the Good Shepherd.

On January 28, 1870 the parishioners of Christ Episcopal Church created a home to care for the sick and infirmed residents of the community.  We were the first provider of hospital care to the residents of the Southern Tier.  Over the next 150 years Good Shepherd has grown to include three facilities in Broome and Chenango Counties.  Today we serve over 560 residents and employ 567 individuals.

On June 19, 2020 Good Shepherd Communities will be celebrating our 150th year of providing services and care to senior citizens with a Gala to be held at the Doubletree by Hilton, 225 Water Street Binghamton, NY.  The evening will begin with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres from 5:00 – 6:00, followed by dinner and dancing to Rooster and the Roadhouse Horns.

We are proud to have been an important part of many families’ lives and we are proud to be an important employer in the communities we serve.

There is no one in the Southern Tier who does not know someone who has been touched by Good Shepherd; whether it’s a friend or relative who received Assisted Living or Skilled Nursing, or someone who received therapy and was able to return to the community or a parent enjoying their retirement in a carefree manner at the Village.

We invite you to join us for this special evening where we will celebrate our past and look forward to our future.  If you would like additional information contact Terry Cortese-Green at 607-484-6075 or by email:  tcortese-green@gscfoundation.org.

You have been a vital part of our success.  Please join us in celebrating our 150th Anniversary.
