The entrance to the John E Andrus Memorial

The John E. Andrus Memorial, also known as Andrus-On-Hudson, is a nursing home community where seniors can enjoy a high quality of life with the security of a continuum of care. Nestled within 26 wooded acres, located high on a hill overlooking the scenic Hudson River in Hastings-On-Hudson, the facility was built in 1953 at the direction of Helen Andrus Benedict, the youngest child of John E. Andrus in her capacity as chair of the Surdna Foundation. More information can be found at:

Andrus On Hudson provides skilled nursing care, moderate assistance care and is also a place where elders can live independently. Together with Burke Rehabilitation Hospital, Andrus also provides comprehensive rehabilitation for those recovering from orthopedic surgery or needing reconditioning to resume their lives after an illness.

Andrus On Hudson is a uniquely intact property, untouched by development, a gracious remnant of the band of extraordinary estates that once stood on the hills overlooking the Hudson River. The property is a verdant place of repose, with beautiful gardens and walking trails. The facility provides many opportunities for residents to relax and enjoy the splendor of the surrounding property with a grand dining hall, library, auditorium and solarium with unmatched views of the Hudson.
