The Amsterdam Difference
As a nonprofit organization, we exist solely for the purpose of providing healthcare. For us, healthcare is not a business proposition. It is our mission and it reflects the values of our founders.
With a tradition of excellence, ANH is proud of its fine reputation. This is reflected in a 5-star rating from Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), our designation in US News and World Report’s “Best Nursing Homes” as well as the feedback we receive from patients, residents, and families.
Our patients and residents are our primary focus- as a nonprofit facility we believe that their comfort and well-being is our bottom line for success.

We invite you to consider our tradition of care which began over 140 years ago.
The Story of Amsterdam
In 1872, Rev. Isaac H. Tuttle was deeply concerned that many elderly people who had been vital and productive during their working years had fallen on difficult times and had no place to turn. He secured a vacant building and established the "Home For Old Men and Aged Couples" also known as HOMAC.
In 1897, land on 112th Street and Amsterdam Avenue was purchased and a new building was completed. It had attractive rooms, parlors and an infirmary staffed with doctors and nurses — it even had an elevator.
101 years after the founding of the HOMAC, a new home known as Amsterdam House was built which could accommodate more than 300 residents. Along with the increased space came increased services.
Our recent expansions and renovations have created a technologically advanced facility for 409 residents seeking long and short term care. We retained a home-like setting which includes Old World style furnishings. Our programs expanded to include an Adult Day Health Care Center as well as a new gym focused on rehabilitation.
