“Based on the results of this study, we are very pleased that Terrace View was recognized as a one of Newsweek’s Best Nursing Homes 2022,” said Thomas J. Quatroche Jr., PhD, ECMC president and CEO, said. “Thanks to the dedication and commitment of our Terrace View caregivers, this award is a testament to their focus on superior customer service, high quality, safe and compassionate care for every resident.  With very medically complex patients averaging 68 years of age, this is a significant accomplishment and a great achievement especially during the ongoing pandemic.  This recognition of Terrace View is yet another example of the ECMC Family’s dedication and passion for those we serve.”

Terrace View, for which current residents had design input, is 275,500 square feet on five levels. It contains three floors of 96 skilled nursing beds each; one floor containing 66 sub-acute rehab beds; a 20-bed ventilator unit and 16-bed behavioral intervention unit — for a total of 390 beds.  The building is connected to the ECMC main hospital and to other facilities on ECMC’s Grider Street health campus via a corridor used to transport patients and residents in need of varying degrees of medical care.  The facility is organized into small-scale, 12-bed households, each with a living room and fireplace, kitchen and dining room.  Each floor features a generous outdoor terrace and an indoor lounge with a view to the terrace.  The ground floor includes shared communal spaces with adjacent gardens and courtyards.  The features offer a stimulating community for residents, families and staff members.
