The Hill Haven Transitional Care Center, affiliated with Rochester General Hospital, offers a comprehensive range of medical and assisted living senior services including short term rehabilitation, skilled nursing care, hospice care, and dementia and Alzheimer’s care.
The facility is undergoing extensive renovation projects to further accommodate evolving patient needs and post-reform healthcare. These changes accompany Hill Haven’s shift from a predominantly residential style nursing home to a facility providing three types of care: post-acute, transitional, and complex long term.
O’Connell’s role for the Hill Haven Renovations, split into 17 phases, consists of two new main distribution panels, 20 additional branch circuit panels, a new fire alarm system, a new nurse call system, all new lights throughout the facility, new power receptacles, new emergency power receptacles, multiple fan coil units, and air handlers throughout the building.
The Foreman and crew from O’Connell were recently recognized by the General Contractor overseeing the entire project for contributing to the company’s excellent safety reports. It was mentioned that O’Connell Electric was the only contractor not fined for safety violations, has been doing an excellent job following safety guidelines, never having to be reminded to put on hard hats, gloves, or safety glasses, and doing a great job with housekeeping.
