Yeadon, Pa., Skilled Nursing Facility Focused on Comprehensive Care and Services
YEADON, Pa., May 25, 2022 — Building on its commitment to comprehensive care and services, Providence Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center in Yeadon recently earned the American Heart Association’s (AHA’s) new Skilled Nursing Facility Heart Failure Center Certification. Located at 600 South Wycombe Avenue, Providence 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 Providence 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 Danielle Koons, regional director of market development at Marquis Health Consulting Services, which supports the facility. “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.”
Providence maintains a four-star rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Together with Marquis, Providence has established a resource library of physician-curated content, addressing many topics of interest for families of patients and the larger community. The library and more information on the skilled nursing facility can be found at provrehab.com.
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.
