About My Services
We are a family-owned, Buffalo-based organization and proud of it! Since 1973 it has been, and will continue to be, our mission to be the first and best choice for our residents and patients. This philosophy is reflected in the actions of our staff, our facilities’ outstanding government rankings and the quality of our programs. For three generations, our family and our employees have been committed to pioneering and integrating progressive programs and services that have defined our local health care community.
For more than 30 years, employees at The McGuire Group facilities have provided outstanding care to individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. We have been lauded for our continued commitment to researching technologies and funding initiatives that assist in treating our residents and supporting their family members.
In the early 1990s, we participated in the development of services for those with memory loss through the opening of our specialized Memory Care Unit at Harris Hill Nursing Facility in Williamsville.
The safe, secured unit incorporates the latest research and design enhancements to meet the needs of our residents, while our structured programming keeps them active and engaged.
Our programming goals focus on providing emotional and therapeutic care to maintain the existing strengths and abilities of each person. Special importance is placed on recognizing individuality and contributing to a resident’s
sense of self-worth.
Our Services Include:
Dementia-Specific Trained Staff - the employees on our Memory Care Units are seasoned professionals who possess extensive experience in caring for those with memory impairments. All staff receive intensive dementia-specific training followed by educational updates throughout the year.
Specialized Programs include in-house daily activities and therapeutic programs such as: Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Art Programs, Massage Therapy, Music Therapy and Recreational Activities.
Small group interaction and a variety of “therapeutic tasks” encourage participation and self-expression.
Architectural details such as secured entrances/exits, visual cues and enclosed park-like courtyards ensure our residents’ safety and independence.
Family Support Groups are held regularly.
At The McGuire Rehabilitation Centers, our experience in the Subacute arena spans more than a decade. Each year, an average of 4,000 patients trust us for the high quality care that we provide. If you are pre-planning a rehabilitative stay, we encourage you visit our facilities, speak with your doctor and request a WRITTEN ORDER to The McGuire Group.
The McGuire Group facilities also offer outpatient rehabilitation services for continued healing after discharge. These specialized programs facilitate continuity of care while you safely adjust to life at home.

Hospitals can reduce the risk of infection after surgery by making sure they provide
care that’s known to get the best results for most patients. Here are some examples:
- Giving the recommended antibiotics at the right time before surgery
- Stopping the antibiotics within the right timeframe after surgery
- Maintaining the patient’s temperature and blood glucose (sugar) at normal levels
- Removing catheters that are used to drain the bladder in a timely manner after surgery.
Hospitals can also reduce the risk of cardiac problems associated with surgery by:
- Making sure that certain prescription drugs are continued in the time before, during,
and just after the surgery. This includes drugs used to control heart rhythms and
- Giving drugs that prevent blood clots and using other methods such as special stockings
that increase circulation in the legs.
An acute myocardial infarction (AMI), also called a heart attack, happens when one
of the heart’s arteries becomes blocked and the supply of blood and oxygen to part
of the heart muscle is slowed or stopped. When the heart muscle doesn’t get the
oxygen and nutrients it needs, the affected heart tissue may die. These measures
show some of the standards of care provided, if appropriate, for most adults who
have had a heart attack.
Pneumonia is a serious lung infection that causes difficulty breathing, fever, cough
and fatigue. These measures show some of the recommended treatments for pneumonia.

Heart Failure is a weakening of the heart's pumping power. With heart failure, your
body doesn't get enough oxygen and nutrients to meet its needs. These measures show
some of the process of care provided for most adults with heart failure. Read more
information about heart failure.
Asthma is a chronic lung condition that causes problems getting air in and out of
the lungs. Children with asthma may experience wheezing, coughing, chest tightness
and trouble breathing.
"30-Day Mortality" is when patients die within 30 days of their admission to a hospital.
The information that follows shows the death rates for each hospital compared to
the U.S. National Rate. The rates take into account how sick patients were before
they were admitted to the hospital.
"30-Day Readmission" is when patients who have had a recent hospital stay need to
go back into a hospital again within 30 days of their discharge. Below, the rates
of readmission for each hospital are compared to the U.S. National Rate. The rates
take into account how sick patients were before they were admitted to the hospital.
Read more information about hospital readmission measures.
These measures give you information about hospitals' use of medical imaging tests
for outpatients based on the following:
- Protecting patients’ safety, such as keeping patients’ exposure to radiation and
other risks as low as possible.
- Following up properly when screening tests such as mammograms show a possible problem.
- Avoiding the risk, stress, and cost of doing imaging tests that patients may not
The information shown here is limited to medical imaging facilities that are part
of a hospital or associated with a hospital. These facilities can be inside or near
the hospital, or in a different location. This information only includes medical
imaging done on outpatients. Medical imaging tests done for patients who have been
admitted to the hospital as inpatients aren’t included.
These measures are based on Medicare claims data.
HCAHPS (Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) is a national
survey that asks patients about their experiences during a recent hospital stay.
Use the results shown here to compare hospitals based on ten important hospital
Hospital Acquired Conditions are serious conditions that patients may get during
an inpatient hospital stay. If hospitals follow proper procedures, patients are
less likely to get these conditions. Medicare doesn’t pay for any of these conditions,
and patients can’t be billed for them, if they got them while in the hospital. Medicare
will only pay for these conditions if patients already had them when they were admitted
to the hospital.
Serious Complications are based on how often adult patients had certain serious,
but potentially preventable complications related to medical or surgical inpatient
Deaths for Certain Conditions are based on how many patients with these conditions
died while they were in the hospital.
