Fellowship Manor is the only nursing care center in the Lehigh Valley and one of two in PA to receive Post-Acute Care Certification from the Joint Commission.

Post-Acute care requirements include:

  • Dedicated, qualified and competent staff members responsible for the provision of post-acute care services
  • Established communication criteria and processes to facilitate effective transitions in a patient or resident’s care
  • Data collection and performance monitoring relevant to reducing patient re-hospitalization.

“Our employees’ dedication to resident-centered care is at the core of our certification,” says Donna Conley, NHA, Chief Operating Officer of Fellowship Community. “The Post-Acute Care Certification from the Joint Commission is a nice recognition and source of immense pride for our nursing staff. Acheiving the certification reflects Fellowship Community’s commitment to providing the highest quality of care to those we serve.”
