Next Step Healthcare chooses Woburn for corporate headquarters

Next Step Healthcare, which specializes in skilled nursing facilities, will open its first corporate office in Woburn in May. The company has leased a 10,700-square-foot space at Cummings Properties’ TradeCenter 128 business campus.

“Next Step Healthcare was looking for a first-class office space that also afforded easy highway access,” said Senior Leasing Director Rob Yacobian of Cummings Properties. “TradeCenter 128 fit the bill perfectly, with its outstanding quality and suite of convenient amenities. We’re delighted to welcome them to the Woburn business community.”

Next Step Healthcare owns and manages nearly 40 skilled nursing healthcare facilities and several assisted living communities, the majority of which are in Massachusetts. The company was founded in 2007 by Damian Dell’Anno and William Stephan, and operated out of shared office space in Needham prior to the move to Woburn.

Next Step Healthcare’s TradeCenter 128 office will house approximately 40 colleagues across the company’s administration, human resources, finance, legal, and marketing departments.

“We represent more than 5,500 staff in 38 skilled nursing facilities,” said Janelle Fairbrother, Next Step’s vice president of administration. “A corporate office in Woburn was ideal for us, as it is centrally located in relation to the care centers we manage.”
