Harris Hill Nursing Facility

Welcome to Harris Hill Nursing Facility located in Williamsville, New York. We’re proudly owned and operated by the McGuire family, the only Buffalo-based multi-facility health care provider in Western New York. For generations, the McGuire family and our employees have been committed to pioneering and integrating progressive programs and services that have defined our local health care community.

This commitment has resulted in Harris Hill continuously receiving outstanding ratings from the federal government, which rates every nursing facility in the country. To see our ranking, as well as those of other facilities, visit www.medicare.gov.

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 Harris Hill Nursing 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 Harris Hill Nursing Facility, 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. Harris Hill continuously receives outstanding ratings from the federal government, which assesses every facility in the country. More information can be found at www.medicare.gov. 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.

We encourage you to complete the online admission application and make an appointment for a personal tour. It’s our desire at McGuire to be your first and best choice. Thank you for your interest in Harris Hill Nursing Facility.

I worked at this disgusting facility for 6 weeks, quit TWICE in that time. DON begged me to come back the first time and I regretted it. Staff members fighting on unit, threatening one another in front of residents. Walking around with ear buds in their ears while doing care. Cell phones out in front of management and no one says a word. No one seems to care about the most important person, THE RESIDENT! Place is FILTHY! CNAs on my unit slept on night shift and I had to pick up the slack by myself. Mind you there are cameras all over the facility but no one seems to see what goes on? I refuse to work in a place that I would not take one of my loved ones for care. how on earth they get their "5 star" rating is beyond me, let alone pass NY State Health Dept Survey.
