Bishop Charles Waldo MacLean Nursing Home

A Wonderful Place to Live

Located at 1711 Brookhaven Avenue with a scenic view of the Atlantic Ocean, Bishop Charles Waldo MacLean Episcopal Nursing Home is a state-of-the-art facility that continues the tradition of care established by Episcopal Health Services. This newly refurbished building accommodates 163 residents. It unites generations of quality health care under one roof, along with commitment to serving the community and the ability to meet the challenges of the changing health care system.

Qualified and experienced staff are genuinely interested in making Bishop MacLean a wonderful place to live. The staff reflects the culturally diverse community, where individual differences and preferences are respected. Most of all, we are dedicated to nurturing a sense of family and well-being for everyone who enters our home.

The Bishop MacLean Home serves as an extended family to you, your friends and relatives. It is your connecting link to the surrounding Far Rockaway community as you and your loved ones come to need health care services.

Our staff has made this possible due to their hard work, dedication, commitment, and compassion. Community involvement is strong at Bishop MacLean Nursing Home.
