Nestled in a quaint Ohio community on top of a hill, Diversicare of St. Theresa has a rich history, which touched many lives on Cincinnati’s east side. Diversicare is celebrating “Over 100 years of Compassionate Care in Historic Mariemont.”
It all began with the dream of an Irish immigrant named Mary Shanahan. Shanahan had a passion for caring for seniors and people nearing the end of life. In founding the St. Theresa home, her dream of creating a warm and welcoming place for patients and residents to receive compassionate care came to fruition. St. Theresa eventually relocated to the Village of Mariemont, which is designated as a National Historic Landmark. The hospital that later turned into a nursing and rehabilitation center is now St. Theresa – A Diversicare Transitional Care Community.
“It is an honor and a privilege to continue the legacy of compassionate care set forth by Mary Shanahan more than a century ago. The historic significance of St. Theresa and the Village of Mariemont is worthy of celebration. From its humble beginning to the advanced care and rehabilitation services we offer today, St. Theresa – A Diversicare Transitional Care Community is proud to be a part of ‘Over 100 Years of Compassionate Care in Historic Mariemont.’ We look forward to the next 100 years of service to our patients and residents,” said Lori Saidleman-Yoh, Administrator.
Today, St. Theresa still serves as a beacon to all those in need of our care. The center provides long-term care and rehabilitation services to more than 180 patients and residents. It is staffed with more than 100 dedicated team members, who honor Diversicare’s Mission: Improve every life we touch by providing exceptional healthcare and exceeding expectations.
