Welcome to the Future of The Beeches!

Nascentia Health is excited to restore this historic and locally significant property and expand its function to a mixed-use development that will include independent and supportive housing options for seniors.

“This is an exciting opportunity for Nascentia Health to adapt this beautiful and historic estate for the future in a meaningful way that exemplifies the importance of The Beeches to the Rome community,” says President and CEO of Nascentia Health, Kate Rolf. “Our renovation plans will bring needed jobs and resources to the area. We’re looking forward to partnering with our Rome neighbors to plan and deliver a new community resource.”

Located in Rome, NY, The Beeches is a 52-acre picturesque property featuring a stone mansion house dating back to the 1910s, events and conference center, active business park, and inn. One of the area’s most well known venues, thousands of Central New Yorkers have made memories of a lifetime at this cherished community asset.

The first phase of the project centers on the historic mansion house and its conference center, which will be updated as communal space and will once again be available for holding meetings and events. The existing inn building and other parts of the campus will be repurposed to a true community for seniors to “age in place,” allowing them to continue to live independently with support from a wide range of healthcare professionals. The project will bring valuable healthcare jobs to the area, including nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists, home health aides, and more.

A Revere Copper roof will cap the new entry canopy at the entry to the historic mansion house.

The Beeches has been owned and operated by the Destito family since 1949. The family wanted to ensure that the parcels would not be broken up or used in a way that would not benefit the community, so Nascentia Health’s plan to create a community-focused mixed-use development was a perfect fit for the vision that the family had for the site. The Destito family—Frank, Dominick, and Orrie—who are 3rd generation owners of the property, note that “we explored many options and proposals for the reuse of this iconic property, hoping to find one that would have the resources and vision to keep it in its entirety, develop something that would benefit the community, and keep its history and beauty intact. It was with Nascentia we found this great combination.”   

“We are so proud to be here at The Beeches again, talking about our vision for its future. The new Nascentia Neighborhood at The Beeches will have independent and supportive housing options that allow aging adults to remain independent in beautiful, safe homes that connect them to medical professionals and social services, all right here on campus. We’ve seen such incredible support and enthusiasm from the Rome community and can’t wait to get started on this exciting project.” – Nascentia Health CEO and President Kate Rolf
