Small House-Style Rehab Therapy

Our Rehabilitation Small House doesn’t look like an average nursing home. We have a state-of-the-art Rehabilitation gym, with therapy offered six times a week (most inpatient therapy is only offered on weekdays). Our short hallways allow you to maneuver around the building more easily than the long hallways most facilities offer. This setting allows you to enjoy activities and meals with the other patients in our large, open dining room, where you’ll have a great view of our chef preparing your food.

A Home-Like Setting

Our highly-trained staff offer personalized, innovative methods, and our award-winning care is sure to help you get back to your life when you’re ready. But while you’re here, you can enjoy our beautiful setting, including a reading library, screened in porch, and cozy fireplace. You’ll see why so many people choose Park Place after their hospital discharge.

Revolutionary Design

Our unique “Small House” at Park Place Health & Wellness Center was thoughtfully designed like a home, not an institution, to promote greater independence. The smaller space means the walking distance from bedroom to dining room is short enough for most people to navigate without assistance. Therapists incorporate real-world community life into patients’ treatment plans – practicing everyday skills like folding a load of laundry, setting the table for dinner, or delivering mail to other clients.

Personalized Attention

We know nothing is more important than the trust between our patients and their caregivers, so Park Place is committed to safe staffing ratios. With no more than 30 rehab patients in our Small House at a time, patients receive the personalized care and attention they deserve. Our facility consistently ranks among the best-staffed in the nation for both nurse aides and RNs, according to CMS reports.

Holding Ourselves to the Highest Standards

Joint Commission accreditation is not mandatory for skilled nursing centers, but Park Place appreciates the commitment to quality that The Joint Commission’s standards represent, so we gladly apply. We’ve earned the Joint Commission’s prestigious Gold Seal of Approval, along with an additional Post-Acute Care Certification, recognizing our effective care transitions and prevention of unnecessary hospitalizations.

Proven Outcomes

Our care staff, social service teams, therapists, and providers work together towards a common goal of returning our patients to home quickly and safely. Thanks to this teamwork, not only do we consistently earn Above Average rankings by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, but we’ve also repeatedly been named to U.S. News & World Reports’ annual list of Best Nursing Homes.

Advanced Clinical Care

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. That’s why Park Place is certified by Vohra Wound Physicians as a Center of Excellence for Wound Management. Our clinical team has undergone specialized training to prevent and treat all types of chronic and complex wound and skin issues, reducing the need to send our patients out to wound care centers or hospitals.

Valuing Our Employees

We value the hard work of our team members through a supportive environment, flexible scheduling, a generous benefits package, and opportunities to advance their careers. And in return, our employees are loyal to Park Place – with a lower staff turnover rate than other organizations in our industry.

Committed to Stopping COVID-19

Since the start of the pandemic, we’ve taken our responsibility to our staff and our patients seriously. We’ve made sure to provide our teams with all the necessary tools and equipment to keep themselves, their patients, and their loved ones safe from the virus. And our smaller architecture and private rooms have helped with infection prevention. Together we’re continuing the fight, with COVID-19 vaccination rates for both patients and staff above the national averages. 

Caring for Body and Soul

What truly sets Park Place apart is our faith-based, non-profit mission. Our call is to serve each individual “in the name of Jesus Christ,” and we do that by investing in our staff and our patients, not shareholders. With a chaplain on every campus, our patients get the support and encouragement they need.
