Philadelphia Skilled Nursing Facility Recognized for Quality Care and Services  

PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 16, 2022 University City Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center in downtown Philadelphia this summer 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 healthcare. Located at 3609 Chestnut St., on the same block as Penn Medicine, the facility offers short-term rehabilitation and long-term care services.  

University City received Nursing Care Center Accreditation after a rigorous, unannounced onsite review by The Joint Commission, an independent, nonprofit organization. During the visit, its team evaluated compliance with performance standards across a range of areas, including post-acute care, emergency management, environment of care, infection prevention and control, and medication management, as well as rights and responsibilities of the individual and leadership.   

University City is supported by Marquis Health Consulting Services, which offers tools and resources to help client facilities become market leaders. “Achieving The Joint Commission’s accreditation after its thorough assessment reflects a dedication to excellence in skilled nursing care by the entire University City team,” said Marquis’ Danielle Koons, regional director of market development. “At Marquis, we are proud to support University City, and we congratulate their care team on this well-deserved recognition.”  

Formerly Restore Health at University City, University City Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center is recently rebranded. A multi-million-dollar capital improvement program is underway at the 124-bed facility, including enhanced specialty programming development and extensive physical renovations.  

Together with Marquis, University City 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
