WYOMING COUNTY COMMUNITY HOSPITAL SKILLED NURSING FACILITY – REPAIRS COMPLETE – NYS DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH PERMITS REOPENING

WCCHS logoEight months after the Wyoming County Community Hospital Skilled Nursing Facility in Warsaw experienced significant structural damage to a portion of its dining areas, residents are once again able to use the areas. On Thursday, August 27, 2015, representatives from the NYS Department of Health inspected the repairs and granted approval to reopen the portion of the dining rooms and entrance that sustained the structural damage on January 14, 2015.

For the past several months, administration, engineers, and construction crews have worked to design, plan, and execute repairs to the damaged area. Repairs included a new concrete pier, steel column, windows, ceiling, lights, flooring, drywall, paint, and other internal reconstruction.

WCCHS Skilled Nursing Facility acting Administrator Dawn James stated that “residents are pleased to have the additional space available and especially excited to view the picturesque country side through the large wall of windows again.”
