Cherry Hill Manor Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Johnston was recently named a 2018-2019 U.S. News & World Report Best Nursing Home for Short-Term Rehab.
This year, the publication changed how it lists its ratings. Centers around the country were rated in an Overall category, and those that offer short-term rehabilitation were rated in an additional category – Short-Stay Rehab. According to Mark White, vice president of specialty marketing at U.S. News, “Only 19 percent of U.S. nursing homes earned at least one badge; some earned both.”
The Short-Stay Rehab category takes into account staffing, outcomes, resident complaints and processes of care, as well as vaccination percentages, nursing staff training and other measures.
“At Cherry Hill Manor, we are very appreciative of the support and collaboration we have received from the community and the medical community,” said Katie Gerber, executive director at the center. “Our positive patient outcomes and customer satisfaction is a direct result of the training and commitment of our staff. The culture of our facility is to be sure our patients know we care how they feel – expertise with empathy and to continuously engage and develop our staff. Our mission is to always be the provider and employer of choice in the community we serve.”
