History of Bryn Mawr Terrace

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.

As a non-profit organization, Bryn Mawr Terrace has increased access to resources that enrich the quality of care provided to our residents. Generous and continued support from individuals, corporations, and foundations allows for increased staff training, facility improvements and much more. Bryn Mawr Terrace offers all the levels of care of a larger continuing care retirement community, but in a quiet, homelike setting.

Situated in the heart of the Main Line, Bryn Mawr Terrace offers exceptional short-term and medically complex rehabilitation, traditional nursing care, memory care, independent living and personal care, as well as restorative care and respite care.
