Wound care


For patients needing surgery for pressure sores or other conditions, Hill Haven is an ideal recovery setting. Our short term rehabilitation and nursing teams provide specialized, high-quality wound care rehabilitation services in an updated, comfortable and clinically state-of-the-art setting. And with Telemedicine technology, our patients can be seen at Hill Haven by their Rochester Regional medical specialist during their transitional care, without the discomfort of travel for required follow-up appointments. If this situation is affecting you or a loved one, ask your primary care provider about incorporating Hill Haven into your recovery plan.

A healing atmosphere for transitional care
