Autumn View Health Care Facility

More than 40 years ago, The McGuire Group’s Chairman Frank McGuire made an investment in our area by opening his first health care facility. In 1983, the company continued to expand its services in Western New York with the opening of Autumn View Health Care Facility in Hamburg. A dramatic highlight to the building is an 8,000 square-foot rehabilitation center offering state-of-the-art physical, occupational and speech therapies. In addition, the facility offers 24-hour skilled nursing care, Journeys palliative care and respite/short-term care.

When Jim McGuire returned to his Buffalo roots and joined his father in the family business in 1996, they were on the precipice of a new era in health care. Technological advances during the mid-90s enabled doctors to perform orthopedic and joint replacement surgeries more precisely and less invasively than ever before, giving patients more options for enhanced quality of life.

As a result, the need for high quality, short-term rehabilitation after surgery became a necessity to ensure proper healing before a patient could safely return home. In response, The McGuire Group 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 short-term rehabilitation. This gave patients the opportunity to receive rehab in a facility where the culture of quality and nursing care already existed, yet with less overhead and cost than a typical hospital stay.

Today, The McGuire Group defies the stereotypes of the nursing home industry, illustrating that great things happen when a family run organization has strong ties to the community and creates a supportive culture to give the patients and staff the resources they need.

If you’re considering an elective joint replacement surgery, it’s wise to give yourself plenty of time to research all the rehabilitative options. This includes talking to your physician, visiting rehabilitation facilities, speaking with therapists and beginning the pre-planning process.

It’s always helpful to keep a few key elements in mind while conducting your research. While touring the rehabilitation centers, take note of the environment. The McGuire Rehabilitation Centers, including Autumn View Health Care Facility, feature specialized equipment as well as suites designed specifically for training in kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and laundry settings. These areas are designed to help you master the skills necessary to return back to the community safely and successfully.

Statistics show, the most effective method for recovery is through a team approach. You’ll want to choose a facility that welcomes your collaboration on a rehab plan that meets your specific needs. For example, if you want to swing a golf club as soon as possible after a joint replacement, it’s important to have a skilled professional trained in orthopedics and sports rehabilitation involved in your recovery.

At Autumn View, your care is fostered by experts in every aspect of healing. Rehabilitative therapists help you regain the physical stamina and range of motion needed to recover; physicians and nurses address the disease process and teach you how to manage your medications; and dietitians assist in helping you adopt healthy lifestyle changes and dietary habits if necessary. After your recovery, social workers help you transition back into the community and coordinate home-based services.

Outpatient therapy is also an important feature to consider. It’s wise to choose a facility that offers both inpatient and outpatient services. This allows you to continue your treatment upon discharge with the same team of therapists and pick up right where you left off as an inpatient.

When touring the facility and talking to the therapists, inquire as to what a typical day might be like. It’s important to exercise after surgery to increase strength and flexibility in your new joint and to prevent blood clots. You may feel uncomfortable at first, but exercising will help you to get back to your normal everyday activities sooner.

If you’ve recently had a hip or knee replacement you will have a number of important regimens in your therapy schedule, some of which may include neuromuscular training, isometric strengthening of the thigh and buttock muscles and exercises to strengthen the hip muscles. Stationary biking or upper body cycling may be added for endurance as well. Progression of standing exercises, including walking backwards or on uneven surfaces, play an important role in improving balance as do a number of step exercises including step ups and side stepping.

If you’re deconditioned due to an accident or illness, your treatment may include a combination of physical, occupational and speech therapy. Rehabilitation will help you to get moving again, regain your strength, relearn skills or find new ways of completing tasks.

A final factor to consider is the facility’s overall ratings both at the state and federal level. Autumn View continuously receives outstanding ratings from the federal government, which assesses every facility in the country. More information can be found at The ratings are important because it’s a reflection of the overall culture of quality that exists at every level within a facility. It’s the highest quality facilities that generate the best outcomes for patients with intensive care, faster healing and less chance for problems or rehospitalization in the future.

the staff work so hard and even though there isn't enough staff to care for all the people under their care, they go above and beyond!! They were there for our Uncle and us, his family right until the end. Thanks to all of you for caring for our Uncle, George H. Church! :(
