In the 1950s, there were no skilled nursing facilities on the Main Line that offered a warm, homelike setting. When Richard McClatchy, Sr.’s father fell ill, he realized the need for such a facility in the area. With the help of his sons, Richard Jr., James and Paul, plans were made for what would eventually become Bryn Mawr Terrace. On June 27, 1966, Bryn Mawr Terrace Convalescent Center opened to serve as the premier center on the Main Line for seniors to live.
Keeping pace with the demand for services, the facility expanded in 1968 and again in 1988. For over 40 years, Bryn Mawr Terrace Convalescent Center remained owned and operated by the McClatchy family. Then, in April 2007, the center became a non-profit organization affiliated with Saunders House in Wynnewood, PA and later managed by Main Line Senior Care Alliance. The exceptional care, personal connections and warm atmosphere that Bryn Mawr Terrace has been known for continue under the new leadership.
It is the mission of Bryn Mawr Terrace to be a premier skilled nursing home of choice for short-term rehabilitation and long-term care on the Main Line.
As a not-for-profit provider, our purpose is to serve the community by providing quality care and services and to use our resources in a cost effective and community responsive manner. We strive to accomplish this in an environment that is respectful or residents and staff.
