In December of 1974 the Diocese of Camden purchased the Vineland Center on Chestnut Ave. In January of 1975 the Hospitalier Sisters of Mercy were assigned to lead and administer the new Bishop McCarthy Residence.
When the Diocese of Camden took possession of the facility there were 90 residents on the second and third floors. The first floor was closed and contained only offices. The Sisters along with a very dedicated staff worked physically; mentally and spiritually to fill all three floors and to give the best care possible for the frail elderly. In 1992 the facility increased its Long Term Bed size from 147 to 182. In 2002 these beds were divided and a Short Term Rehab Unit was formed to provide care for those in transition from the hospital to home. Presently, Bishop McCarthy Residence has 182 beds.
