McGuire Facilities Ranked Highest in State, Top Score in WNY

The McGuire Group, a provider of skilled nursing and rehabilitative services, is pleased to announce that all six of its facilities have been listed in the top quintile in New York State’s quality pool metrics. Additionally, its Autumn View Health Care Facility in Hamburg received the highest score among all WNY facilities.

The state’s report, which was distributed in February, evaluates nearly 600 facilities based on measurable indicators of quality including such metrics as: pressure ulcers, falls, catheter use, deterioration in activities of daily living, flu vaccine rates, resident weight loss, rehospitalization rates and others.

Currently, The McGuire Group is the only multi-facility operator in WNY with all of its facilities falling into the top quintile.

The five local facilities feature more than 950 beds and include: Autumn View Health Care Facility in Hamburg, Garden Gate Health Care Facility in Cheektowaga, Harris Hill Nursing Facility in Williamsville, Northgate Health Care Facility in North Tonawanda and Seneca Health Care Center in West Seneca. Additionally, the group’s Brookhaven Health Care Facility on Long Island fell into the first quintile and earned the highest score in Suffolk County.

Information for the state rankings is calculated and managed by the New York State Department of Health.

“Our performance in the state’s ranking system highlights the culture of quality that exists at every level within our facilities,” stated McGuire President Stephen Mercurio, RNMS, LNHA, CAS. “We’re focused on creating healthier communities by meeting a full spectrum of needs from short-term rehabilitative stays to 24-hour care.”

Over the last 40 years, The McGuire Group’s programs have grown in scope and complexity to include skilled nursing care, secured memory care units, palliative care programs and respite/short-term care for individuals seeking temporary options for a loved one. In addition, The McGuire Group has invested millions in the redevelopment and expansion of its programs and facilities, turning its traditional health care settings into state-of-the-art environments for intensive subacute and outpatient rehabilitation servicing more than 4,000 patients annually.
