Throughout the decades, we’ve constantly looked to adapt, innovate and grow. As generations, society and technology evolves, so do we.

Historical Highlights


The Baptist Home of Monroe County was established as a retirement home by Dr. Marcena Ricker, Susan B. Anthony’s close friend and personal physician.


The Home saw what would be their first expansion of many more to come, allowing for an increased number of residents.

1930 - 1970

Expansions brought the ability to accept more residents and move toward providing more medical care to meet their increasing needs.


The campus went through a $22 million renovation and new construction project to convert the traditional style of nursing home living to a new, innovative household model. No call bells or nursing stations, but instead, an open-style floor plan to encourage socialization and resemble a true home.


Fairport Baptist Homes is recognized on a national level as a constituent in a small group of pioneers who have changed the culture of long-term care. This household model encourages independence, involvement and a sense of community.
