Hathorne Hill designed to make patients feel at home


Cedar Glen has operated in town since 1965 in a building that was built as a hotel. When it closed in February, 63 residents came over to the new facility at 15 Kirkbride Drive.

Middlemass said the facility took 31/2 years to develop from concept to opening.

The Beverly-based health care real estate company College Street Partners developed Hathorne Hill, and it was built by Nauset Construction, Middlemass said.

College Street Partners also helped develop the former Northeast Health System’s Beverly Hospital at Danvers ambulatory care facility next door, which is now part of Lahey Health. Genesis HealthCare is a tenant in its new facility.

Middlemass said Hathorne Hill will serve as a blueprint for other Genesis HealthCare facilities. The organization has more than 400 skilled nursing homes and assisted-living facilities in 28 states.

The development of Hathorne Hill on 9 acres of the Lowlands of the former Danvers State Hospital was not without some issues when it was first proposed. In 2010, developers won a variance to requirements that limited the density of development on the site.

“The Planning Board made a change,” said Town Manager Wayne Marquis, who said it’s exciting that the nursing home is finally complete.
