RRH Opens New Temporary COVID-19 Facility in Webster

WEBSTER, N.Y. — ​There will be a new nursing home option that will serve COVID-19 patients only, after another executive order signed by Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Rochester Regional Health is opening Empire Manor, a new temporary facility at its Hill Haven campus to serve as a COVID-19 dedicated nursing home.

This facility will accept nursing home residents who’ve been hospitalized with COVID-19 and are no longer symptomatic, but aren’t able to return to their nursing home until they’re fully recovered.

The goal is to free up hospital beds while continuing to help the most vulnerable patients.
