History

A Legacy of Aging Services in Cleveland

McGregor has a deeply rooted history of providing care and support for Cleveland’s older adults. Learn more about McGregor PACE and the origins of the PACE program.

What Is the PACE Model?

The PACE (Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly) model of care can be traced back to the early 1970s, when the model was created to meet the needs of families in the Chinatown-North Beach community of San Francisco. These families were seeking long-term care for their elders who had immigrated from China, Italy, and the Philippines. Dr. William L. Gee, a public health dentist who recognized this need in his community, joined forces with Marie-Louise Ansak, to find a solution. Together, with the help of other community leaders, they formed a non-profit corporation called On Lok Senior Health Services. On Lok is Cantonese for “peaceful, happy abode.” On Lok Senior Health Services provided a community-based care system that would later become the premise for today’s PACE program. In the following years, On Lok would grow and continue to receive funding. And, in the 1990s, the On Lok model was used to create the PACE program that we know today.

What Is the History of McGregor PACE?

McGregor traces its roots to the Home for Aged Women, one of Cleveland’s first private nursing homes, built in 1877 by railroad tycoon Amasa Stone and his wife Julia. In 1930, Stone’s son-in-law, philanthropist Samuel Mather, dedicated the new Amasa Stone House to replace the original. It served the inner-city Glenville community for nearly 75 years.

Meanwhile, in 1904, Tootie McGregor built the first A.M. McGregor Home in East Cleveland to honor her late husband, Ambrose, a close associate of John D. Rockefeller. In 1987, the Amasa Stone and McGregor organizations merged to form The A.M. McGregor Home. Eventually, operations were consolidated to McGregor’s 32-acre campus overlooking East Cleveland and Lake Erie.

In 1999, the McGregor board began a strategic redirection that has included expanded direct care operations, independent housing, and grant making. In addition, the board established The A.M. McGregor Group to provide administrative services and strategic oversight to all McGregor entities.

In 2010, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and the Ohio Department of Aging chose The A.M. McGregor Group to manage McGregor PACE.
