This fall, the Hill Haven Rehabilitation and Transitional Care Center will be closing after more than 40 years.
Jill Graziano, RN, BSN, MBA, Senior Vice President of Extended Care at Rochester Regional Health said in a press release Tuesday:
“Hill Haven has been a staple of our community. Following months of deliberation and careful consideration, we are announcing the building’s retirement, but not its legacy, which our employees will carry forward. We are committed to keeping 100 percent of Hill Haven’s 350 staff members with positions throughout the health system.”
Rochester First gave more background on why the facility decided to close and stated:
“Officials say several factors influenced the decision to close the facility, including ‘the shifting needs of the community, as well as growth of in-home and transitional senior living and health care options.’ Officials say nursing homes across the state and country are also experiencing similar patterns.”
