Mount View Care Center has received the Women’s Choice Award® from WomenCertified® distinguishing it as one of the 2013 America’s Best Nursing Homes for Patient Experience. This award designation is based on robust criteria that include female patient satisfaction measurements as well as clinical excellence considerations.
"The Women's Choice Award is testament to the compassion and dedication our Mount View Care Center team has for those we care for, and speaks highly of our continued innovation and commitment to excellent service and quality care," said Gary Bezucha, CEO, North Central Health Care.
"We are proud of Mount View Care Center for taking ownership of their patient experience and creating an environment that offers the best in long term healthcare services," explains Delia Passi, CEO and Founder of WomenCertified. "As the average lifespan increases and larger numbers of older adults require care, a family’s decision can be made easier by knowing the facilities that other women highly recommend," said Passi.
- Today, more than 60 million families are caring for an aging or disabled person at home, and caregivers, mainly women, are feeling the crunch. (Forbes May 2013).
- Women make 90 percent of health care decisions for themselves and their elderly parents, according to a study published by the American Academy of Family Physician.
- More than 69 million people spend an average of 20 hours per week engaged in family caregiving according to the National Family Caregivers Association, (Nov. 2009).
Nursing homes qualify for this highly selective annual list based on an objective proprietary scoring process. The selection process begins with the 5 star rating system from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services rating three major elements: health inspections, nurse staffing, and quality of care. Weighting was then applied that reflect women’s preferences and priorities. In addition, any facility with serious deficiency reports is eliminated from consideration.
