The exceptional staff of Hilly Hill provides compassionate nursing care and outstanding assisted living services, thus relieving stress and anxiety of families and residents of those in our retirement home community.
GEORGE, SR. & JOAN OHMAN
George and Joan Ohman were first introduced to the field of Long-Term Care in 1964 by friends from Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The first phase of their new calling was the purchase of a ranch-style home that overlooked the beautiful East Branch Reservoir and Grandview Country Club in Middlefield, Ohio. After one year of full occupancy, and with limited potential for building expansion, they acquired the Fairmount Nursing Home in Newbury, which they renamed Holly Hill. It is located in a quiet rural setting on 11 acres on Fairmount Road in Geauga County.
Today, Holly Hill and its sister facilities, Briar Hill Healthcare Residence and Blossom Hill Care Center, are the culmination of George and Joan’s vision of the past 45 years. Guided by their love for God and their love for people, George and Joan remain committed to the highest level of resident care in the Holly Hill community.
