Rosebrook Blood Drives: More Than Pints

WAREHAM – Beginning in May, the A.D. Makepeace Company partnered with the American Red Cross and Southcoast Health to host a monthly blood drive series at Rosebrook Place.  Over 130 donations have been collected, with plans to continue the series monthly through the balance of the year.

One recent blood drives included a challenge between the Wareham Fire Department (WFD) and the A.D. Makepeace Company.  The two event partners held a friendly wager to see who could get the most representatives to sign up for the drive.  The “losing” organization agreed to make a $100 donation to a charity of the winner’s choice.

The WFD took advantage of their slight edge and selected the efforts of Don’t Trash Wareham, a group of citizens who coordinate townwide cleanup efforts. Taking it a step further, the WFD team enhanced the donation by matching it.

“This is a win-win situation,” said Jim Kane, president and CEO of the A.D. Makepeace Company and a blood donor. “In these challenging times, we’re all looking for ways we can help those less fortunate than us, and the Red Cross certainly needs our help. Enhancing a sense of camaraderie with the Fire Department and supporting a local organization makes the benefit even better.”

The Rosebrook blood drive series continues this fall, with drives scheduled for October 21, November 17, and December 16 at the Rosebrook Event Center, 50 Rosebrook Place, Wareham. Advance registration is required. Visit admakepeace.com or the A.D. Makepeace Company Facebook page for a schedule of upcoming drives and registration links.

The A.D. Makepeace Company, founded in 1854, is the world’s largest cranberry grower, the largest private property owner in eastern Massachusetts, and an award-winning real estate developer known for sustainable land stewardship.

Ground Broken for BID, Long Pond Physical Therapy Building at Redbrook

Plymouth, MA — March 6, 2019 — Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital – Plymouth and Long Pond Physical Therapy will soon be a part of the Redbrook community, as ground was broken Tuesday for a new building that will house both.

The 6,300-square-foot building is a joint effort of the A.D. Makepeace Company, developer of the new village known as Redbrook, and A.P. Whitaker & Sons, Inc., the West Bridgewater builder who recently completed the first phase of the Redbrook YMCA.

“We describe Redbrook as ‘the New England village reimagined,’ and having medical offices here is an important element of the community,” said Michael Hogan, president and CEO of the A.D. Makepeace Company. “But here, our family doctor’s office is backed by one of the world’s most renowned medical institutions.”

Mr. Hogan was joined at groundbreaking festivities Tuesday morning by state Sen. Vinny deMacedo, Town Manager Melissa Arrighi, and Michael Kennealy, newly appointed secretary of housing and economic development for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

“At Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital – Plymouth, we are committed to improving the health and wellness of our community,” said Kevin Coughlin, president and CEO of the hospital, who also attended.  “As a member hospital of the newly formed Beth Israel Lahey Health System, we continue to partner with our neighbors in making healthcare more accessible.  We are honored to be a member of the Redbrook community and to bring quality healthcare close to home.”

The building, designed by Saltonstall Architects of Marion, has been in the planning stages for several years, and has space for two additional tenants.

“By breaking ground on our third location, Long Pond Physical Therapy is looking forward to continuing its exceptional quality of care to the people of Plymouth and its surrounding areas,” said Brian Faghan, PTA, owner and president of Long Pond Physical Therapy.  “We’re looking forward to working with BID and the Redbrook community to continue to bring exceptional quality rehabilitative care to the people of Plymouth closer to home.”

The building, located on the west side of the village green, is scheduled for completion this fall.

Redbrook also currently features a full-service YMCA, and The Meeting House which also contains the Redbrook sales and management offices as well as The Farmers Table, a café-style restaurant with a menu designed around their farm-to-table culinary philosophy.

At buildout, which will occur over a decade, Redbrook will include up to 1,200 homes, all within easy walking distance of the village center with some 60,000 square feet of commercial space. The village features more than 1,400 acres of preserved forest, with walking trails, kayak launches, ponds for fishing, swimming, and more. Five neighborhoods are complete now, and 184 apartments are under construction, with occupancy starting this summer.

The A.D. Makepeace Company is developer of the award-winning Redbrook. The 165-year-old company is the world’s largest cranberry grower, the largest private property owner in eastern Massachusetts, and a recognized leader in environmentally responsible real estate development and stewardship.
