In the beginning, it was the need of our community that prompted Dr. Richard Stefanacci, Sam Pompa of Caro Industries, and their associates to develop Forest Hill Healthcare Center. Forest Hill Healthcare Center represents the first major construction project for our neighborhood in several decades.

“We saw the need for a quality senior care community in our area and felt that it was important to provide growth within the Branch Brook Park neighborhood. As a result of this need, combined with our expertise in providing senior healthcare care we can proudly show our end product which is Forest Hill Healthcare Center.”

-Dr. Richard Stefanacci, Founder and CEO

Our Mission

Forest Hill Healthcare Center shall commit itself to providing the highest quality of nursing and rehab care to our patients. In recognition of this commitment, Forest Hill shall partner with healthcare organizations and professions that share this mission, and employ only the most competent, compassionate, and highly motivated staff.

We shall pursue our mission by identifying and acknowledging the individual values of our patients, and dedicate ourselves to meet their needs in an atmosphere of communication that promotes healing, cooperation and mutual respect.

Our Vision

Forest Hill Healthcare Center views itself as the leader in Post-Acute Care services in the City of Newark and the surrounding communities. Our goal is to provide our patients admitted to our Post-Acute care program, the opportunity to return to a level that will enable them to function in their homes and avoid future hospitalizations.

We will continue to develop and introduce innovative programs and pursue new technologies that will support our efforts to remain as the leader in Post-Acute Care Services.
