Unity Health System breaking ground on expansion

Rochester Business Journal
May 2, 2011

Unity Health System was slated to break ground Monday on an expansion of The Villages at Unity on Long Pond Road in Rochester, officials said.

Plans include a new 40-apartment assisted-living community, opening a memory care unit, redeveloping common space between the communities and building climate-controlled connectors between all buildings, officials said.

The Villages at Unity complex includes independent and assisted-living apartments.

“Retirement- and assisted-living communities in the Rochester area are in high demand,” said Sandra MacWilliam, executive vice president of Center for Aging and Continuing Care at Unity Health System. “We are responding to that need, and the fact that seniors want and deserve residential options, social opportunities and access to such things as exercise, dining, and computers.”

There are 352 senior housing units on the Unity Park Ridge Campus. The redevelopment project will add 30 units. Construction is expected to be complete in 2013.

The Villages at Unity ranked No. 7 on the Rochester Business Journal’s most recent list of independent-living communities
