On March 8, 2012 the Cabrini Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation (CCNR) announced its closing. Located in the East Village on the lower East Side of Manhattan, the Cabrini Center provided 20 years of compassionate care. The Cabrini Center lost its lease after the building was purchased by a new owner. The closure process will take months as residents are safely transitioned from CCNR. Residents will transition to either private homes or other nursing facilities. The Cabrini Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation is not to be confused with the St. Cabrini Nursing Home in Dobbs Ferry, NY. The announcement about the closing is available on the Cabrini Eldercare website.
