Welcome to Trinity Hill Care Center
Dear Resident and Family Members,
I would like to welcome you to Trinity Hill Care Center. My staff and I are dedicated to fulfilling our Center’s mission of “Enriching the Lives of the Residents we Serve”. We accomplish this goal every day by teaching our staff to look at our patients as guests and making their stay as comfortable, effective and enjoyable as possible. Our resident rooms have been upgraded to include amenities like flat screen televisions that will make your stay with us more comfortable. Our “Point of Service” dining program is designed to give our Resident’s the widest selection of meal preferences. Our dedication continues even after discharge with calls from our social work staff making sure that discharge arrangements are working as planned.
