Springbrook completes purchase of St. Mary's School Property

By WKTV News

ONEONTA, N.Y. - Springbrook, a leader in providing innovative supports for people with developmental disabilities, has completed the purchase of the former St. Mary’s School property, located on state highway 7 in Oneonta.

The sale—made possible by an agreement between Springbrook, Citizens Bank, and the County of Otsego Industrial Development Agency—was closed on July 25, 2012.

Springbrook began moving offices into the 52,000 sq. ft. building in April 2012. The new programmatic hub includes an employee training center as well as administrative offices for Springbrook’s community-based and residential programs. Springbrook’s existing main campus, located on state route 28 near Portlandville, NY remains the agency’s headquarters and location of the recently expanded K-12 residential school program.

Springbrook currently provides at-home care, residential and educational services, day services, and clinical, therapeutic, and behavioral supports to over 750 people with developmental disabilities from across New York State. “Many people don’t realize the extent of Springbrook’s regional presence. This building will be a resource for our nearly 1,000 employees and will further position our agency to meet the ever changing needs of this community and New York State,” said Springbrook CEO Patricia Kennedy.

Additional plans for the building include relocating and expanding the Kids Unlimited Preschool. Kids Unlimited Preschool offers early intervention and evaluation services and is the only preschool in Otsego County, NY with an integrated program for both typical and disabled children. The preschool will begin classes at the new location in September and is currently accepting new students for the 2012-13 academic year.
