A pioneer in long-term care, Bent Philipson has a keen eye for evolving healthcare trends, new regulations, and patient needs.

Bent Philipson has long focused on providing residents with innovative health programs, maintaining cutting-edge healthcare technology, and employing compassionate professionals that bring years of experience to their roles.

For patients requiring advanced ventilator care, Philosophy Care provides access to revolutionary VOSCN ventilators with an integrated oxygen concentrator, nebulizer, and cough assist features. It is largely thanks to the excellent team of healthcare workers Philipson has assembled that populations across the east coast have access to this level of advanced care.
