A history rooted in rehabilitation; a future based on empathy

Our History

Legacy Healthcare Services was founded in 1999 by an occupational therapist who saw a need for on-site rehabilitative services in senior living communities. For over 20 years, Legacy operated as a therapist-owned corporation and spread its footprint in communities in over 12 states across the nation.

In 2018, Legacy was acquired by Deaconess Associations Incorporated, a non-profit organization that provides healthcare opportunities to those in need. In turn, Legacy's operations now not only impact the lives of seniors across the nation, but also those in need through Deaconess' charitable mission.

Legacy is still proud to be therapist-operated. Not only are our operations and clinical services run by therapists, but our Chief Executive Officer is also a trained physical therapist with a passion for empowering dignity into the lives of seniors. Since 2018, Legacy has expanded exponentially and is proud to offer services in over 21 states. Even amidst a pandemic, Legacy continues to provide the much-needed services the senior population depends on in a time they have needed our services the most.
