We are a Catholic, not-for-profit, skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility in Wellesley, MA

As a ministry of the Sisters of Charity (Halifax), we are deeply committed to delivering quality, person-centered care in a welcoming environment that meets the physical, spiritual, psychological and cultural needs of our residents and families.

  • Long-term care, palliative care, hospice and respite stays
  • Short term post-acute rehabilitation stays for skilled nursing and therapy

"My patients have raved over the short-term rehabilitation experiences they've had at Elizabeth Seton. They appreciate the outstanding care and are treated with compassion and expertise by every staff member. The comfortable single rooms add to the healing process. It is no surprise that they consistently achieve and even surpass their goals.

It really is a hidden gem!"
