ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — A long-time nursing home will be closing its doors in the fall.

Hill Haven Rehabilitation and Transitional Care Center will close after 40 years, Rochester Regional Health, which operates the home, announced Tuesday.

RRH says several factors played into the decision to close the home, including what it says are shifting needs of the community, as well as growth of in-home and transitional senior living and health care options.

The healthcare system said other nursing homes across the state and country are also experiencing the same situation.

RRH said all 350 Hill Haven employees will keep their jobs in different placements throughout the health system. Placement notices will be given out in the coming week.

As for residents, organizers say they will assist and support them in a transition to other facilities or other nursing homes within the system, or back home.

Residents and families who have questions about the transition of care can contact AskHillHaven@rochesterregional.org or call Rochester Regional Health’s new hotline (585)-974-5900.
