Copley at Stoughton is a private nursing home in Stoughton, one of the last in the state, according to Steven Tyer, its administrator. The 123-bed facility provides long- and short-term care and rehabilitation services, and has been in existence since 1994. Its majority owner is the Goddard Foundation, which was created with the assets of the former Goddard Memorial Hospital in Stoughton. We spoke with Tyer for this story.
Q. What makes Copley at Stoughton so unique?
A. It’s a standalone, one of the last locally owned and managed in the state. Most places are owned by giant corporations, but selling has never been an issue here. Goddard is solvent, and very committed to this. I came from a corporation, Wingate Healthcare, and was COO for years. Working here is harder than any job I’ve ever had; we’re doing it all on our own, and we’re very successful at it.
