SYLVANIA—Rosary Care Center, the long-term care nursing facility for the Sisters of St. Francis of Sylvania and women and men religious in the Diocese of Toledo, was recently ranked fifth out of more than 950 skilled nursing facilities in resident satisfaction, according to the Ohio Department of Aging.
“This is an outstanding achievement,” says Cheryl King, administrator of Rosary Care Center. “The fact that we ranked fifth in the state reflects the high level of satisfaction of our residents and is a testament to the hard work of our staff and the quality of care they provide. I am extremely proud of everything they have done to earn us this ranking.”
Rosary Care Center, built in 1975, is a four-story, 76-bed, long-term nursing facility for the older members of the Sisters of St. Francis. It expanded a few years ago to include women and men religious from the Diocese of Toledo and last fall added relatives of those in religious orders in Toledo.
Residents rated direct care, nursing assistants, activities, administration, meals and the environment. Rosary Care scored 100 percent on two general questions — “overall, how do you like this facility” and “would you recommend this facility to a family member or friend” — which reflects the quality of care provided by the staff. This satisfaction survey is important because the amount of Medicaid reimbursement per resident is directly linked to the results.
