The 50th Anniversary Celebration of Dodge Park Rest Home
The 50th anniversary of Dodge Park Rest Home and The grand Opening of the Oasis at Dodge PArk took place on September 13, 2017. There were 383 guests that attend the event at the courtyard of the Oasis facility.
"We feel very bless of having such a great support from the community, state and city official, and the consumer. Without every one support we will not be bale to deliver the unique level of care provided at both facility", stated the facility co-owner Micha Shalev.
We would like to thank our guest of honors and speakers Senator Harriet Chandler for her supports in past years and assitant with the project development, Senator Michael Moore and Dr. Alice Bonner for their support of our vision. Special thanks to Worcester Mayor Mr. Joseph Petty who assist us with city permits and approval, Mr. Edward Augustus, Worcester City manager, Mr. Timothy Murray who was instrumental with getting the TIFF approved and Denis Thomas from the Alzheimer's association.
Fifty years is a milestone. It is an occasion to celebrate- an opportunity to momentarily look back but a golden ticket to chart the path forward.
We reach a time in our business cycle when we realized that the candles will cost us more than the cake ….. (stop….) and then we decided it is time for a party, not just a party, a great party.
One thing is for certain in life: there will be one thing that will dominate your life. I strongly suggest it be something you can be proud of. In order to accomplish this one thing to be proud of you need to make sure that you have:
Something to do - Someone to love - Something to hope for - Something to believe in
And…. We are very proud on the Dodge Park 50 year’s tradition of excellent care, and we extremely proud of the newcomer … the young, dynamic , unique and bold sister … the Oasis at Dodge Park.
I would like to thank our clinical team Dr. Bogdan Nedelscu, Dr. Phillip Gotlieb, Dr. John Kethcum and Kate Kasper NP for keeping our residents healthy years around and truly committed to our mission of excellence in care.
We would like thanks Roger and Ella – our food directors - who prep all food by themselves ….. and prohibited …..us from hiring a catering service …
Special KUDU to all our wonderful managers and staff that help us put this event together. (Inviting all Dodge Park and Oasis managers and employees to stand up)
At the end of the day – we are as good as our team we work with.
I would like to recognize all the wonderful construction team that helps us bring the Oasis to life. From our design team of Levi and Wong, Project Manager Steve Mirick and all wonderful subs. Many of them are with us today.
