Dignitaries and Healthcare Colleagues Join in Ribbon Cutting Event at Towson, Md., Skilled Nursing Facility

TOWSON, Md., April 19, 2022 — The leadership of Orchard Hill Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center and Marquis Health Consulting Services recently celebrated the completion of a sweeping, $5 million renovation and modernization. A recent, invitation-only event brought together dignitaries, care team members and healthcare colleagues at the Towson skilled nursing facility; highlights included an Executive Citation from Baltimore County Executive John A. Olszewski Jr.  

“Orchard Hill has been completely transformed into a modern, home-like environment for residents – one that accommodates progressive skilled nursing care and services,” said Nikki Gachot, regional director of market development for Marquis Health Consulting Services, which supports the facility and spearheaded the renovation. “Everyone at Orchard Hill and Marquis couldn’t be more pleased with the results, and we thank County Executive Olszewski for recognizing the facility’s contributions to the community.”  

The multi-million-dollar renovation featured top-to-bottom upgrades throughout the facility, including the addition of a 2,500-square-foot therapy gym and the incorporation of a spacious activities of daily living (ADL) suite. The gym features state-of-the-art equipment, including a smart car, and technology to support the delivery of progressive rehab services, while the ADL suite mimics a home environment – enabling patients the opportunity to regain skills before returning home.    

Orchard Hill’s new design incorporates ample glass to capture abundant natural light and cleanly divide open spaces. It features a modern feel that is both warm and invigorating with its orange, geometric-shaped accents.  

Renovation highlights also include wide, bright hallways; well-appointed rooms with contemporary fixtures and furnishings; and updated lounge areas for family visits, as well as the addition of a thoughtfully landscaped outdoor courtyard. “The updates pair a high level of functionality with colorful and uplifting aesthetic touches – it’s gorgeous!” said Gachot. 

During the renovation process, Orchard Hill and Marquis also enhanced the facility’s specialized programming in partnership with leading regional healthcare providers. Its comprehensive range of offerings include specialized Cardiac Care, Palliative Care, Physiatry and Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Management programs, as well as a Pulmonary Rehab program featuring a full-time respiratory therapist. 

Located at 111 West Road, the 134-bed skilled nursing facility provides post-hospital care, short-term rehab and long-term residential care.  Together with Marquis, Orchard Hill developed a resource library of physician-curated content, addressing many topics of interest for families of patients and the larger community. It can be accessed on the facility’s website,  

Based in Brick, N.J., Marquis Health Consulting Services is a highly skilled and vision-driven nursing home consulting company currently supporting Mid-Atlantic and New England facilities totaling approximately 6,000 skilled nursing and assisted living beds.
