VillageCare Rehabilitation & Nursing Center
VillageCare Rehabilitation and Nursing Center is a new state-of-the-art Center. It is a unique entity in the New York City long-term care marketplace, as it is designed not as an end-point – the traditional role of nursing homes – but as a place where most patients will receive rehabilitation and recovery care to prepare them to return home.
The six-story, 105-bed Rehabilitation and Nursing Center is the first newly built skilled nursing facility in Manhattan in more than half a century.
Staff at The Center have been specially trained to enhance their abilities to interact with patients and to work in non-traditional ways with those in their care and with their families. The state-of-the-art medicine and care, along with surroundings and an environment designed to promote healing and well-being, enhance the patient-staff relationship.
Common areas are central to the two distinct “neighborhoods” that are created on each floor. The “commons” are where patients can socialize with other residents, dine, relax and visit with family, friends and loved ones. Dining areas on each floor have self-serve hospitality food bars and full-service pantries.
The overall facility design promotes efficient and effective delivery of rehabilitation services, respecting individual privacy and dignity. A healing bamboo garden, integrated into the entire facility footprint so that it can be seen from all levels, will offer a place for quiet social interaction and contemplation.
The design facilitates the flow of patients and staff throughout the Center. Operationally, wireless electronic medical records, wireless staff communications and electronic dietary, patient monitoring and workflow systems will support better staff functioning and patient care.
