Heritage Hills joined the Health Concepts family of caregivers in 2012. Our skilled nursing and rehabilitation center houses up to 95 patients each day who come to us for short-term rehabilitation, post-acute care, or long-term care for those with a chronic illness, dementia or a need for assistance with multiple activities of daily living.
Who We Are
Heritage Hills Nursing Center opened in 1975, built and managed by the owner, John Sormanti. He was succeeded by his daughter, Joyce Sormanti, who ran the home until June 1, 2012 when David Ryan of Health Concepts purchased the home as the 11th of 12 Health Concepts homes in Rhode Island.
The majority of the staff and department heads all remained in their positions and renewed their commitment to the residents and the home. Many of the employees have worked here for over 10 years or more. There has always been a sense of family and community here, which is embedded throughout all the departments at Heritage Hills.
We are fortunate to be located in the rural setting of Smithfield, Rhode Island on acreage that offers the calming sounds of nature and the beautiful sights of vast greenery. We are also close to the highway and abut several towns.
Our mission is to provide each resident with individualized care and preferred choices of daily living in our “home away from home” environment through physical, psychological and emotional support. We strive to earn family trust and encourage a bonding relationship with our team. The commitment of our employees allows us to maintain the highest standard of care, which is the ultimate goal of Heritage Hills.
Our vision is that we succeed in our mission and continuously strive to be innovative by offering new and challenging experiences to further enhance our resident’s quality of life in a safe and accepting environment.
