Our Lady of Mercy Life Center
Our Lady of Mercy Life Center is committed to providing quality services with the outstanding compassion for which St. Peter's is renowned. Our well-trained staff's devotion to our residents leads to better outcomes and higher ratings in resident and family satisfaction surveys.
Our Center's location in Guilderland, NY, is a tranquil, wooded setting with easy access from one of the region's major roadways, Route 20. This tranquil setting features a private courtyard, a waterscape area, beautiful plant life, and a creative herbal garden in which residents are encouraged to participate. Resident activities take place in the courtyard, weather permitting, including A Summer Concert Series that is enjoyed by both residents and their families.
Divided into four units of 40 residents each, four private rooms and 18 semiprivate rooms, the Life Center strives to maintain the intimacy of a homelike setting. To help foster a sense of community and friendship among the residents, each unit has its own distinctively decorated dining room.
We are proud to be recognized by New York State's Island Peer Review Organization (IPRO), a national leader in health care evaluation and quality improvement, and the NYS Department of Health Best Practices Programs for our work in a number of clinical areas. In addition, we are recognized in the HANYS Pinnacle Awards Publication, and as a lead agency on numerous NYS Departments of Health and Labor grants. Our Lady of Mercy Life Center staff has presented its best practices at a number of professional conferences.
