Northwell Health Stern Family Center for Rehabilitation has been named a Top Performing nursing home by the New York State Department of Health for the third consecutive year.
The facility received the classification again after being evaluated during the New York State Nursing Home Quality Initiative, which takes place annually. The Stern Family Center was graded on performance and the quality of care provided to the residents living there. Stern is one of only five nursing homes on Long Island to have received the highest ranking by the state.
“We are very proud of receiving this prestigious designation from the New York State Department of Health,” said Gerard Kaiser, executive director of skilled nursing facilities for Northwell Health. “This validates the hard work and commitment of our staff and physicians to provide the highest quality of care to the patients at The Stern Family Center for Rehabilitation.”
Stern, which is a state-of-the-art facility, provides sub-acute and extended care services, social interaction and daily care for people recovering from serious illness or injury. It’s located on the campus of North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset. The center, which opened in 1989, is a skilled nursing facility with 249 beds.
