Joel Landau

Joel Landau is a seasoned healthcare entrepreneur dedicated to providing first-rate care to seniors in nursing homes throughout New York. Leveraging state-of-the-art technology and an expert staff, Landau has a distinguished record ensuring positive patient experiences and the best possible outcomes.

The Allure Group was born of Joel Landau’s own personal experience. Finding that the care his ailing grandfather received did not meet his expectations, Landau set out to create a healthcare network featuring the comprehensive care and integrated programs of for-profit facilities with the mission-driven and community-minded approach of nonprofits.

Joel Landau saw his dream come to fruition in 2012, when he opened The Allure Group’s first facility. Since then, Landau and his team have refurbished existing facilities and transformed them into top-notch nursing homes and rehab centers. There are now six facilities in The Allure Group’s network.

Innovation is central to Joel Landau’s mission, as he has a distinguished record integrating the latest technology with proven approaches, enabling The Allure Group to raise patients’ quality of life while coordinating with health plans to minimize costs. Residents at the Harlem Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation, like the others throughout The Allure Group’s network, benefit from the following:

  • PadinMotion technology — a Samsung tablet accessible from all 1,400-plus beds in The Allure Group’s facilities, providing residents with entertainment options and the ability to contact loved ones;
  • EarlySense — a remote monitoring system that enables staff to track residents’ vital signs and body movements through sensors placed under mattresses;
  • Telemet RYK — a monitoring system geared specifically toward cardiac patients;
  • Vis A Vis — a telehealth solution allowing patients to make a virtual doctor’s visit following discharge from one of The Allure Group’s facilities, via a hand-held device.

Joel Landau believes strongly in community-minded management, where residents’ quality of life is always top of mind. That concept takes on added meaning at the Harlem Center, given the deep ties our facility has to the surrounding area.

“Harlem Strong” is the center’s motto, and that is reflected not only in our local staff but also in the various initiatives we undertake that involve those from the surrounding area, notably the Spring Planting Program with local youth groups. We coordinate fundraising and sponsorship programs with nearby clergy, and we open our doors to various community organizations for their gatherings.

As part of Harlem Center’s short-term rehabilitation, long-term care and skilled nursing services, the facility offers residents access to The Allure Group’s 365 Advantage program. Under Landau’s leadership, the program combines the amenities of a five-star hotel with state-of-the-art care, featuring the latest technology and world-class healthcare professionals.

Harlem Center also participates in The Allure Group’s Hearts in Motion cardiac program, which was developed in concert with NYU Langone’s Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation. On-site cardiologists deliver first-rate care to patients facing heart illness, part of an initiative that also includes improvement protocols and educational programs designed to improve lifestyle choices.

Residents at The Harlem Center also benefit from Minds in Motion, The Allure Group’s neurological rehabilitation program whereby specially trained teams of physicians, physiatrists, nurses and staff provide comprehensive care to those recovering from such conditions as stroke, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) and ALS.

Finally, Harlem supplies orthopedic care to those who have undergone joint replacement surgery or are recovering from a broken bone, as well as those suffering from such conditions as arthritis or osteoporosis.

Joel Landau is also a co-founder of Pinta Capital Partners, a healthcare private equity investment firm geared toward the industry’s lower middle market, including managed long-term care, behavioral healthcare, skilled nursing, assisted living, independent living and memory care.
