History

Located on Ferry Road outside of Doylestown in Central Bucks County, Pine Run Retirement Community opened in 1976, one of the first retirement communities in Bucks County and the only one with a full-service, 200-bed regional Health Center devoted to senior care. The community attracted recently-retired seniors and the Pine Run Health Center soon became a key health care component for hundreds of families throughout Bucks and Montgomery counties.

Doylestown Hospital purchased Pine Run Retirement Community in 1992, adding specialized senior care to its community-based healthcare system. In 1998, Doylestown Hospital purchased a personal care facility, which became Pine Run Lakeview, in Doylestown Borough.

The land that is now home to Pine Run Retirement Community was part of William Penn’s 1861 land grant from King Charles II of England. It was farmland for a time, and two Colonial era farmhouses, dating from 1766 and 1791, add historic interest to our campus. Both are used as vital parts of Pine Run Retirement Community: The Jonathan Good House is the Yellowwood Inn, Pine Run’s bed-and-breakfast for visitors, and the Callendar-Hines House holds our administrative offices.
