Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) May 27, 2010
The Meadows Health Care Center, a privately owned facility in Forest Park, has promoted Gretchen Aichele as the new Director of Operations. Gretchen was in the role of Director of Marketing. Gretchen has been with the Meadows for one and a half years. Under her supervision, The Meadows has been awarded two superior awards in the last few months. One of the awards was from the Ohio Academy of Nursing for Excellence in Health Care, and most recently as the Business of the Month for the City of Forest Park.
The mission of The Meadows Health Care Center, which provides services for short-term rehabilitation, long-term rehabilitation and permanent resident care, is that the residents always come first. Gretchen believes this starts with every member of the staff.
“We emphasize the importance of listening to our patients. When we pass them in the hall, we stop to greet them. Their needs are of the utmost importance to us. That’s why we are here—to help them get better and have a higher standard of living,” Aichele said.
Gretchen’s background includes a Bachelors Degree in Aging Services and Administration from the College of Mount St. Joseph, a Bachelors Degree in English from John Carroll University, and her Administrative License since 2008. She has worked in Long Term Care since 2003. In her new role as Director, she will be working closely with the nursing staff, physical therapists, doctors and all of the health care professionals who come in to care for her residents. Aichele believes that by offering the finest in health care, her patients thrive and the families of her patients feel comfortable leaving their loved ones in the center. She is a huge advocate for the patients rights in every situation.
The Meadows Health Care Center has an aggressive plan to reach out the community and later this year will be hosting a number of events to let people learn about their center and the excellent care they provide. As our population continues to age, many adult children are searching for elder care for their parents and grandparents. The Meadows Health Care Center has services, excellent facilities and a comprehensive program of health and wellness for their residents.
The Meadows Health Care Center is one of three facilities in the Cincinnati area owned by Karen Jamison-Brothers. It is located at 11760 Pellston Court, Forest Park.
