GERRY – Heritage Ministries announced this week they will be temporarily halting skilled nursing admissions in response to New York State’s new testing mandate.
Jeremy Rutter, Heritage Chief Clinical Officer, announced Friday that Heritage skilled nursing and rehabilitation communities in Chautauqua County will temporarily cease all admissions effective Tuesday, May 19.
This temporary admission halt will affect The Village in Gerry, The Park in Jamestown, and The Green in Greenhurst.
“Starting Tuesday, we will not be accepting admissions into our skilled nursing communities until we have sufficient test results indicating that our staffing will not be negatively impacted by our compliance with the executive order,” he explained.
Heritage Ministries was founded as the Orphanage and Homes of the Free Methodist Church in 1886 and has grown from its original campus in Gerry, to six locations in New York with additional affiliations across the United States.
