Edgehill’s Short-Term Rehabilitation Recognized by U.S. News & World Report
Stamford, Conn. – Edgehill has again been recognized by U.S. News & World Report for excellence in short-term rehabilitation care. This is the sixth time since 2016 that Edgehill’s skilled nursing and rehabilitation center has been named to the list. Edgehill’s short-term rehabilitation has a “High Performing” rating, the highest possible designation earned by just 17% of the 203 facilities in Connecticut.
Edgehill offers residents and the greater community comprehensive rehabilitation and skilled nursing services in a spa-like atmosphere. Services provided include physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, cardiovascular services, orthopedic services, dedicated care teams and wound care, among others.
“Edgehill is proud to be recognized yet again by U.S. News & World Report,” said Christopher Cilano, Edgehill Campus Executive Director. “It is an honor to be recognized once. Earning it a sixth time is humbling for our team that works tirelessly, with compassion and dedication, to provide the best possible care to our residents and peace of mind to their families.”
U.S. News & World Report’s overall and short-term rehabilitation ratings are based on an assessment of resident care, safety and outcomes. The short-term rehabilitation rating focuses on the consistency of direct care staffing, quality measures and outcomes and success in preventing emergency room and hospital visits. The rating is determined using data submitted by the community to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Earlier this year, Edgehill’s rehabilitation and skilled nursing center was recognized as a five-star facility by CMS.
Compared to competitors, patients at Edgehill’s skilled nursing and rehabilitation center are significantly more prepared to return home after discharge, rather than a hospital or other care setting. According to U.S. News & World Report, the community performs more than 15% better than the national average, with over 69% of Edgehill residents able to return home after being discharged.
As a CCRC, Edgehill provides a full continuum of care for those who need it, when they need it. In addition to skilled nursing and rehabilitation, Edgehill offers independent living, assisted living and memory care. Edgehill was also recognized in U.S. News & World Report’s 2023 Best Senior Living issue as one of the best CCRCs in the country. The community earned top marks for its independent living, assisted living, and memory care neighborhoods in that edition.
