Unity Health System Dedicates The Village Senior Living Community

Unity Health System will celebrate and dedicate its expanded state-of-the-art senior living community, The Village, located on the Unity Park Ridge Health Care campus in Greece, on September 13.  

The $22 million multi-phase expansion project broke ground in 2011 in response to a community need for more senior housing and specialized care.

The project involved building a new 40-apartment assisted living community, a 20-apartment memory care community, redeveloping common space between the existing and new communities, and building climate-controlled connectors between all buildings.

The Village was the first suburban-style senior living community of its kind when it opened in 1990. Today, The Village is the still only community in New York state that offers a full continuum of senior housing options, ranging from independent living up to skilled nursing care, as well as a variety of acute care services for seniors, all located on a hospital campus.

“The Village continues to serve as a model state of the art community. We're extremely proud of what we've built and the lifestyle we offer our residents. It's truly like no other,” said Don Felter, President of Unity Senior Housing.

Depending on the level of care needed, seniors can easily transition between the Village independent living community, assisted living apartments, the newly added memory care community – which offers a higher level of care and security for seniors who have Dementia-related diseases and/or cognitive decline – as well as Unity’s 80-bed skilled nursing home which is also located on the same campus.
