Under Spring Hills Management, Post-Acute Facility’s Overall Rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Climbs Significantly
WOODBURY, N.J., September 15, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Spring Hills, an innovative leader in post-acute care, senior living and home care with 35 locations across seven states, has established Spring Hills Post Acute Woodbury as a premier partner to regional health systems. With its close proximity to Philadelphia, the Woodbury center is well-positioned to serve patients from residing within this major metro region. Located at 467 Cooper Street, Spring Hills Post Acute Woodbury offers state-of-the-art rehabilitation services with personalized support, and fully integrated population health management.
Spring Hills Post Acute Woodbury is one of five former Atrium facilities that officially joined the Spring Hills family in July 2021. A bold innovator in the post-acute care sector, Spring Hills commenced management and oversight of the Atrium facility in January 2019. The facility has since increased ratings from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ Five Star Quality Rating System from two to four stars, a major jump that results from patient-care improvements.
"Spring Hills Post Acute Woodbury has earned a reputation for excellence in post-acute care, and our recognition is the result of an experienced clinical team leading the charge in close collaboration with our many care partners," said Michael Guglielmo, administrator at Spring Hills Post Acute Woodbury. "As we continue to deepen relationships with our community, regional medical providers and physician groups, we look forward to building on all of the good work and successes achieved since 2019."
During the past two years, the Spring Hills team made comprehensive improvements to the facility’s quality of care and compliance, financial, operational, and communications standards and efficiencies. Integrating Spring Hills’ unique culture was essential to this process. The company’s commitment to high standards and values and to continually enhancing the patient care experience is the cornerstone of their operations.
"The team at Woodbury has demonstrated incredible tenacity in their effort to raise the bar for post-hospital care for people in the region," said Alex Markowits, Founder and President/CEO. "Spring Hills Post Acute Woodbury serves as a model for success due to our team’s collective, collaborative pursuit of extraordinary care."
In addition to implementing comprehensive quality improvements, under Spring Hills management, Post Acute Woodbury has formed new partnerships with regional medical providers including world-renowned academic medical center Penn Medicine and Virtua, South Jersey’s largest healthcare provider. Working closely with medical staff, Spring Hills Post Acute Woodbury launched the center’s first comprehensive cardiac program. Notably, the program included the ability to care for left ventricular assist device (LVAD) patients at the facility. A testament to the expertise and capabilities of the clinical teams, the comprehensive cardiac program yielded successful treatment and the speedy recovery of a high volume of clinically complex heart failure patients.
"New partnerships coupled with industry recognition underscore the hard work of our Woodbury clinicians and staff delivering excellent patient experiences and care day in and day out," said Jason Hutchens, Senior Vice President of Operations, Post Acute Care, Spring Hills. "We look forward to building on this model and helping our patients live healthier, happier lives after a brief rehabilitation stay at our center."
Spring Hills Post Acute Woodbury offers state-of-the art monitoring and rehabilitation services including non-invasive hemodynamic monitoring, aquatic therapy in a HydroWorx rehabilitation pool, AlterG Treadmills and NeuroGym rehabilitation therapy equipment. Patients have access to a cardiologist, a dedicated Patient Concierge and private room accommodation.
