Schoellkopf Health Center, located on the Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center campus, has been awarded a Five Star national quality rating by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on its Nursing Home Compare website.
“In my opinion, the role of the nursing home worker is the most challenging job in America,” Memorial President and CEO Joseph Ruffolo said. “Nursing home employees do more than simply provide care for the elderly and infirm – they create a home for them. The Schoellkopf Health Center team has demonstrated sustained excellence and truly deserve this recognition.”
For the third consecutive year, Schoellkopf received the top rating, which was developed to provide consumers with an easy way to search for nursing homes providing the quality of care they desire. All data on the website is provided as a public service.
“Our nursing staff, social workers, rehabilitation team, dietitians, activities staff and others work together day in and day out to give our residents the best of care in a homelike setting,” Schoellkopf Administrator John Durno said.
The Schoellkopf Health Center provides short- and long-term care for individuals in need of nursing or rehabilitative services.
Located adjacent to both Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center and the restored Schoellkopf Park, the 120-bed Schoellkopf Health Center features all private rooms. Experienced staff members provide quality care, comprehensive physical and occupational therapies, in-house dialysis services and a calendar of intergenerational activities.
