​​​​​​Centre Care, Formally Known as Centre Crest, needs the community's help

The nonprofit Centre Care has launched a final $2 million fundraising push for its new $45-million skilled nursing facility set to open next year in College Township.
When completed, the new 240-bed facility on Persia Road, off of Benner Pike, will replace the 80-year-old Centre Crest in Bellefonte, which has been operated by Centre Care since 2013, when ownership was transitioned from Centre County.
For the “Make Our House a Home” fundraising campaign, the State College-based Hamer Foundation has committed to matching the first $300,000 raised from individual donors.
“The new Centre Care belongs to everyone who has made our part of Pennsylvania their home," Betsy Boyer, Centre Care’s board president, said in a news r
elease. "We care deeply about every person in our community and want to ensure they receive the best care. But we need help. We’re calling on the community to support us so we can create the next best place to home at our new facility.”
