The Brompton Heights residence and Interfaith Chapel have a unique history. The original building, completed in the 1950s, was an educational religious mission and seminary belonging to the Consolata Mission Fathers. Present owner Mark Hamister (CEO and Chairman of the Hamister Group, Inc.) bought the building in 1980 and his late father, Professional Engineer George Hamister, converted it to an Assisted Living Residence. The building reopened as Brompton Heights in 1982. Although many changes were made, the Hamister Family maintained the Interfaith Chapel and extensive country grounds as they were during the time of the Mission Fathers.
In the late 1980s and early 1990s, Mark Hamister added an all-suite wing and an Ice Cream Parlor (pictured, left) to the residence. True to his commitment to providing excellent care and luxurious living space, he undertook an $11 million reconstruction program in 2007. Brompton Heights now has 94 new assisted living suites, a Memory Care Unit, a new dining room, a private dining room, an in-house movie theatre, and a redesigned recreation space. Original resident rooms were also refreshed.
In August 2008, Brompton Heights added ten Independent Living Apartments to its range of Senior Living (pictured, right). Apartment residents enjoy their own private homes, complete with full-sized kitchens, extensive recreational programming, and many other services.
The Hamister family has had close ties to the residence throughout its history. Evelyn Hall, Mark Hamister's grandmother, was the very first resident to live at Brompton Heights. His mother Jane Hamister served as the residence's Recreation Director for many years and continues to give watercolor painting and other art classes as a volunteer instructor. Mark's late father George Hamister, who had been instrumental in designing and developing the resort-like settings of the community, was also a resident at Brompton Heights.
Today Brompton Heights celebrates many years of dedicated service. We offer residents a unique five-star living experience, complete with fine dining, 24/7 recreation, and three shifts of a full-time nursing staff on-site. Residents enjoy life to the fullest while our caring staff members, many of whom have served our residents with distinction for over fifteen years, continue to provide genuine family care.
