National Program Reflects Camden County SNF’s Focus on Comprehensive Care    

BERLIN, N.J. (Jan. 2, 2024) — Building on its commitment to comprehensive care and services, Berlin Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center in Camden County recently earned the American Heart Association’s (AHA’s) new Skilled Nursing Facility Heart Failure Center Certification. Located at 100 Long-A-Coming Lane in Berlin, the skilled nursing facility provides post-hospital care, short-term rehab and long-term residential care.

The world’s leading nonprofit focused on heart and brain health, the AHA has invested more than $4.8 billion in research since its founding. Evaluation criteria for its new skilled nursing certification – earned by less than 1% of skilled nursing facilities nationwide, to date – was designed by heart failure experts. Certification requirements include program management, personnel education, clinical management, care coordination and performance improvement, as well as patient and caregiver education and support.        

“This advanced certification provides heart patients with the assurance that Berlin is recognized by the AHA for delivering the most effective heart failure treatment strategies based on a standardized method of current evidence-based guidelines,” said Kate Bauer, regional director of market development at Marquis Health Consulting Services, which supports Berlin. “These specific care strategies and services are aimed at improving outcomes for those with chronic heart failure and its co-morbidities, as well as reducing readmissions.” 

Berlin recently earned a prestigious accreditation for its quality care and services from The Joint Commission, the nation’s oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care.
