The Carmelite System

Located in the Hudson Valley Region of New York, on the grounds of the Motherhouse of the Carmelite Sisters, the McCrory Center is the headquarters for the Carmelite System. Opened in 2010, the McCrory Center provides the Carmelite System with additional resources to better serve our residents and facilities.

The Carmelite System, a Catholic not-for-profit health system sponsored by the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm, consists of senior care facilities that provide services to the aged and infirm.

Our member facilities are located in Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Massachusetts, New York, Ohio and Dublin, Ireland where senior care services are provided, including skilled nursing, assisted living, independent living and post-acute care.

The Carmelite System, headquartered in Germantown, New York, focuses on system-wide coordination and collaboration to foster mission, improve quality and attain operational efficiencies. Services such as mission effectiveness, quality improvement, financial and business services, group purchasing, management of information services, strategic planning, public policy, and education are provided.


The mission of caring for the elderly began in 1929 when Mother Angeline McCrory founded the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm. In 1999, the Sisters formed a non-profit corporation known as the Carmelite System for the Aged and Infirm, Inc., which was renamed The Carmelite System, Inc. in 2010.

The Carmelite System continues the work of serving the aged and infirm and to perpetuating the healing ministry of Jesus in long-term health care by providing benefits to and assisting facilities sponsored, co-sponsored and served by the Carmelite Sisters.
