Located in the village of Blanchester along State Rt. 28, The Laurels of Blanchester is a 50-bed skilled nursing and rehabilitation center that provides care for both short-term and extended-stay guests. We are excited for you to see our renovated facility that includes Private Rehab Suites with private handicapped accessible bathrooms.
Our short-term rehabilitation programs include physical, occupational and speech therapy and are designed to help our guests move from hospital to home as quickly as possible. Our in-house therapy staff works closely with guests' personal physicians to design customized rehab care plans. Guests participate in rehabilitation within our state-of-the-art rehab gym. When you graduate from your inpatient stay you can continue to receive rehab from your own therapists in our Outpatient or Home Care program.
As a Guest at The Laurels of Blanchester, whether you are staying for a short time or long term, you'll receive clinical expertise from our whole team focused on your unique healthcare plan. You can rest assured you'll receive care that has been measured to exceed both the standards of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid and the American Healthcare Association.
We also offer our extended-stay guests the most extensive medical care outside a hospital, starting with our own medical director. We recognize, however, that a good quality of life must include activity and meaningful relationships as well as good health, so we offer a full schedule of activities, events and holiday celebrations that often include guests' families. Many of these activities will take place in our expansive activity room, with more than enough room for friends and family. During free time, guests are invited to enjoy our enormous courtyard or relax in one of the many guest lounges located throughout the facility.
We hold a 4 Star ranking Overall with 5 Star ranking in Quality Measures, 3 star in Health Inspections and 3 Star Ranking in Registered Nurse Staffing which is based on a specific set of clinical data measures laid out by CMS. Additionally, The Laurels of Athens is a proud recipient of the 2017 Bronze AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award, which signifies our continual commitment to quality of care for all of our Guests.
Underlying all we do for our guests is our guiding philosophy, The Laurel Way of Caring. This special way of thinking, reflected by every member of our carefully selected staff, ensures that every guest will be offered respect, dignity, companionship and compassion every day.
