Fellowship Manor has received the 2018 Women’s Choice Award® as one of America’s Best for Extended Care. This evidence-based designation is the only extended care award that identifies the country’s best healthcare institutions based on robust criteria that considers female patient satisfaction, clinical excellence, and what women say they want from an extended care facility or nursing home.
The nationwide list represents facilities that have 25 or more beds, and have received at least 18 combined stars in the four categories determined by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) five-star rating system. The CMS categories are: general staffing, RN staffing, quality rating and inspection survey rating. Awarded facilities must also have a Medicare certification, full sprinkler systems and no recent history of penalties or fines.
“One of the hardest decisions a woman will ever have to make is to choose a nursing home or extended care facility for a loved one. Reducing the risk of making the wrong healthcare choice is our mission,” said Delia Passi, CEO and Founder of the Women’s Choice Award.
“Our dedicated, professional staff always go the extra mile in caring for our residents,” said Donna Conley, NHA, Chief Operating Officer of Fellowship Community. “Their commitment to excellence has resulted in the recognition as one of the Best in Extended Care.”
