Former Absolut Care nursing home in Orchard Park becomes COVID-19 continuing care facility

Orchard Park

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The former Absolut Care nursing home in Orchard Park is opening back up, but as something else.

Now called the St. Joseph Post-Acute Center, the Duerr Rd. location will serve as a dedicated COVID-19 continuing care facility starting Tuesday.

Catholic Health, who is working with the McGuire Group, made the announcement on Monday morning.

The facility will offer short-term rehabilitation and skilled nursing care for patients who were discharged from Catholic Health hospitals, but cannot yet safely return home or to another community-based living facility.
