Fellowship 2014 Women’s Choice Award a America’s Best for Extended Care

Fellowship Manor honored for providing exceptional extended care to residents

Fellowship Manor has been named a 2014 Women’s Choice Award® recipient as an America’s Best for Extended Care, acknowledging Fellowship Manor‘s dedication to provide exceptional and compassionate care to its residents. By carrying the Women’s Choice Award seal, they are recognized as a facility that women would highly recommend for their loved ones’ long-term care, rehabilitation, and nursing care needs.

Women are responsible for 90 percent of all healthcare choices, as recorded by the American Academy of Family Physicians. As America faces an increase in life expectancy with one in every four 65-year-old today living past the age of 90 (Social Security Administration), one-third of all Americans will require long-term care at some time in their lives with more women than men residing in nursing homes (Illinois Council on Long Term Care). The Women’s Choice Award empowers women to make this choice with confidence by providing nursing homes and long-term facilities with the qualification that validates the choice they must make for themselves or on behalf of a loved one.
Fellowship Manor qualifies for this highly selective annual list based on an in-depth proprietary screening process.  The process utilizes data reported by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and identifies those facilities that provide comprehensive extended care services, and that meet criteria for resident satisfaction and excellence based on female needs and preferences.

Women carry the burden of making the majority of healthcare choices for themselves and their families. Reducing the risk of making the wrong healthcare choice is our mission. These select extended care facilities are meeting the highest standards of excellence and performance through compassionate and professional care. We applaud Fellowship Manor’s commitment to fulfill the needs and preferences of women and their families,” states Delia Passi, CEO and founder of the Women’s Choice Award program, and former group publisher of Working Woman and Working Mother magazines.

The Women’s Choice Award program provides women with a trusted third party endorsement based on extensive research, resident recommendations, and long-term care experiences by residents in their community and supports that with selected performance data. By carrying the Women’s Choice Award seal, Fellowship Manor has joined an elite network of institutions committed to a global mission to empower women to make smart healthcare choices.

“It’s nice to be recognized for excellence,” says Bob Zentz, President/CEO of Fellowship Community. “Receiving the prestigious national award is a great way to celebrate Fellowship Community’s 25th anniversary this year.”

“Our dedicated employees are the foundation of our success. Their commitment to providing our residents with compassionate care that exceeds expectations has greatly contributed to this recognition,” Zentz adds.

“Women spoke and clearly defined what’s important to them when seeking an extended care facility and the standard of excellence they expect for themselves and their families. As one of America’s Best for Extended Care, Fellowship Manor was selected due to their excellent ratings in areas such as nurse staffing, quality care, and inspection results,” says Delia Passi.

Women have many choices when it comes to extended care. Now they can make informed choices based on carefully chosen criteria. Most importantly, when a woman sees the Women’s Choice Award seal at her local long-term facility, she’ll know they value her experience as a critical component of care for her and her loved ones.
