McGregor, TX (PRWEB) July 08, 2014
Westview Manor and Rehabilitation Center, located in McGregor, TX is now under the ownership of Paragon Healthcare Group.
Westview Manor has been serving McGregor and the surrounding communities near Waco for close to five decades. During that time, Westview has earned a reputation for providing high quality skilled nursing care and rehabilitation services, coupled with warmth and compassion.
Janie Schmitt, the mother of one resident, shared her feelings about Westview Manor. "We came with broken spirits and were welcomed with open arms by every single person from housekeeping, nursing, administration, therapy, activities to dietary. My beautiful boy's life changed immediately after coming and he was transformed from being constantly living in pain to being peaceful and pain free in less than 24 hours after admission."
The facility – which is successfully operated – is a departure for Paragon, which specializes in turning around distressed and underperforming skilled nursing facilities.
According to Jeff Deutsch, VP of Marketing at Paragon, “Westview Manor is a well-run, respected facility with a capable and caring staff. Our goal is to provide additional resources, such as staff training, new equipment and more amenities that will help ensure the facility remains a leader in short-term rehabilitation and long-term skilled nursing care for the future.”
Through intensive education and positive reinforcement, Paragon has been able to successfully improve care in their facilities and accept residents with higher acuity and more complex needs. By introducing efficient systems and processes, residents have also seen a significant increase in the quality and effectiveness of therapy. As a result, over time, the company has been able to achieve better patient outcomes, while lowering the rate of readmissions back to hospitals.
In addition to improving care, Paragon makes a concerted effort to improve customer service, hospitality, building aesthetics and amenities in order to bring a competitive product to the market. Improvements can run from new, electric beds and flat screen television sets to a nationally-recognized dietary program to complete building renovations.
Paragon is committed to investing resources into Westview Manor to further enhance care and hospitality.
“I’m excited to work with Paragon,” says Rod Bickford, Westview Manor's Administrator. “They care about people and understand what it takes to succeed in today’s changing and competitive environment. They have a history of investing in their facilities for the benefit of residents and staff. In the few weeks that they have been with us, they have taken the time to meet with staff, family members, and residents to ensure a smooth transition. They have also met with local healthcare professionals to better understand the needs of our community.”
“Westview Manor has been a pillar of the McGregor community for close to 50 years. Paragon looks forward to being here for the next 50,” adds Mr. Deutsch.
