National Program Reflects Spring Grove’s Focus on Comprehensive Care    

NEW PROVIDENCE, N.J. (Dec. 18, 2023) — Building on its commitment to comprehensive care and services, Spring Grove Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center in New Providence recently earned the American Heart Association’s (AHA’s) new Skilled Nursing Facility Heart Failure Center Certification. The 106-bed skilled nursing facility, located at 144 Gales Drive, 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 2% 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 Spring Grove 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 Kani Burgos, regional director of market development at Marquis Health Consulting Services, which supports Spring Grove. “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.”
