Erie County Medical Center has announced that its new $103 million, 390-bed nursing home will be named the Terrace View Long-term Care Facility on the ECMC Health Campus on Grider Street.

The facility is scheduled to open in February. The name is based on the design feature of multiple terraces that provide residents with wide-ranging views.

Terrace View replaces the 80-year-old Erie County nursing home in Alden. Terrace View also combines in one location existing long-term care beds from ECMC. The new home is organized into small-scale, 12-bed households, each with a living room and fireplace, kitchen and dining rooms.

Terrace View was designed by Cannon Design of Grand Island.

It contains three floors of 96 skilled nursing beds each; one floor containing 66 sub-acute rehab beds; a 20-bed ventilator unit; and a 16-bed behavioral intervention unit on the ground floor.
