Company donates $50K to Lynch Park carriage house

BEVERLY — The restoration of the Lynch Park carriage house has gotten a major boost with a $50,000 donation from American Renal Associates.

Chairman and CEO Joseph Carlucci presented the donation to Mayor Bill Scanlon last week at the company’s new location at Cummings Center.

Carlucci, who lives in Beverly, said the contribution is part of the company’s commitment to the city. American Renal had been at Cherry Hill Park in Beverly until its recent move to the top floor of the 500 building at Cummings Center.

“We wanted to stay in Beverly because it’s a great community,” Carlucci said. “It has an airport, beaches; it’s close to Boston. There really aren’t that many communities that can boast that.”

A group of citizens has been working since 2002 on restoring the carriage house, which was built in 1905, and turning it into a community cultural center.

Lynch Park Advisory Committee Chairwoman Denise Deschamps said the $50,000 from American Renal Associates is the largest single donation toward the carriage house thus far.

Scanlon called the donation “extremely gracious.”

American Renal Associates owns 125 outpatient kidney dialysis centers in 21 states. The company has almost 200 employees in Beverly and approximately 2,500 across the country.
