Armenian Nursing & Rehabilitation Center

Armenian Nursing & Rehabilitation Center (ANRC) is an 83‑bed, not-for-profit, skilled nursing center on a beautiful three-acre lot in Jamaica Plain, a neighborhood of Boston, and bordering Brookline.

  • We provide both Short-Term Rehabilitation and Long‑Term Care.
  • We provide “person‑centered” care with high staffing ratios to get to know you as the individual you are, and make you as comfortable and “at home” as possible.
  • We are strategically located minutes away from world‑class hospitals, such as Mass General, Brigham and Women’s, Beth Israel Deaconess and other acute-care partners.
  • We are next to Larz Anderson Park in Brookline, a beautiful 64-acre parkland listed on the National Register of Historical Places, and down the road from The Country Club in Brookline – the oldest golf-oriented country club in the United States.

Long-Term Care


Excellence in long-term care is at the heart of what we do at ANRC.  Our consistent caregivers and patient-centered approach are at the very foundation of our model.

Our residents can rely on the clinical expertise and 7‑day per week availability of physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech therapists who work closely together in a physician-directed rehabilitation program.

Our long-term care philosophy includes the following:

  • Skilled staffing levels to meet your care needs
  • Food that is both delicious and nutritious
  • Time outdoors for healthy living
  • An outdoor terrace environment that allows for comfortable family visits
  • Clergy visits to meet your spiritual needs
  • Working with you to ensure the highest possible quality of life



Admissions at ANRC

The majority of our residents enter ANRC after a stay in an acute care setting. All such patients are screened in advance to assure that the Center is an appropriate placement. In addition to accepting Medicare, we are also an in-network provider for:

  • Tufts Health Plan
  • Harvard Pilgrim HealthCare
  • United Healthcare (most plans)

Families of prospective residents are encouraged to visit the Center and meet with staff prior to admission; however, this step is not required for residents who are expected to return home after rehabilitation. Hospital case managers and discharge planners will make referrals to us upon request by the patient or his/her family.

Residents who are unable to return home after rehabilitation may qualify to remain in the Center as a long-term care resident. The Center also accepts MassHealth. Our staff will assist with completing an application, if appropriate. 

Some residents transition to our long-term care directly from home or an assisted living facility. In such situations, a tour of the facility and a meeting with a member of the Admissions Committee is required in advance. A financial application will also be required.

To schedule a tour and pre-admissions meeting, please call:   617‑522-2600 and ask for Admissions.
