The Silvercrest facility is located on a four acre site in the residential community of Briarwood, Queens. The 5-story building houses eight nursing units, each containing forty beds. The building contains substantial recreational areas as well as main and satellite dining facilities. The "Wellness Center" is a well appointed, outpatient medical office through which more and more of the medical services within the facility are coordinated. A fully equipped dental operatory makes nearly all routine dental and dental hygiene procedures available on site.
The grounds possess three terraced areas that provide locations for outside activities and family visits. Plans are underway for other landscaping changes that will provide residents new attractive outdoor environments for relaxation and exercise.
