DAYVILLE — Lieutenant Governor Susan Bysiewicz made an extensive trip through Westview Health Care Center and the future site of Country Living at Westview Commons Sept. 17. 
She and her contingent covered ground everywhere from the main entrance, through the various wings of the facility, and all the way to the construction site across the street into the 75-unit and 115,000-square foot structure that is currently being built. 
Executive Vice President and Administrator David T. Panteleakos and Westview Commons Executive Director Donna Copeland said “given her busy schedule, the Westview leadership greatly appreciated the visit.”
Bysiewicz even called numbers for the bingo game in the Therapeutic Recreation Department.
Her visit continued down each of the wings of the 103-bed skilled care facility, affording additional residents and patients with opportunities to interact with the lieutenant governor.  She also visited the Outpatient Aquatic Therapy Center, the Sports Medicine Department and the Country Living at Westview Commons construction site.
Bysiewicz said: “Governor Lamont and I like to visit all kinds of businesses and we’re particularly interested in health care because that is one of the strengths that Connecticut has.  It was nice to visit the long-term care part of Westview and then, to come over here and see the construction of these beautiful independent and assisted living units that will be opened in about a year.”
Panteleakos said: “We are very appreciative of the fact that Lt. Gov. Bysiewicz traveled to tour our facilities; and engage with our residents and health care professionals. Caring for our senior population is vital to the social fabric of our community and Lt. Governor asked all the pertinent questions of a health care provider and employer that I would have expected. We were all very impressed with her!”
