In 1910 Dr. Jennie Schofield and a group of volunteers founded the not-for-profit "Wheel Chair Home" for the elderly in Western New York. Today Schofield continues to provide quality health care services in our 120 bed skilled nursing facility on 5 beautifully landscaped acres in the Town of Tonawanda.
