Warm And Welcoming … And Deficiency Free!

Briarwood Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center, a 120-bed Subacute Rehab and Nursing Community in the heart of residential Needham recently underlined its reputation for excellence, achieving Deficiency-Free results for two consecutive years, in the yearly Survey conducted by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.

Unannounced annual visits to healthcare facilities to evaluate the facilities’ compliance with State and Federal regulations ensure this rigorous survey examines various aspects of quality, safety and overall performance. This includes medication management, proper skin care, food service, environmental safety, and respect for patients’ rights and dignity.

In close proximity – only a few hundred feet away – from Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Needham, Briarwood provides specialized services that include Pulmonary Rehabilitation, Respiratory Care, Complex Medical Management as well as Alzheimer’s and Dementia care. The facility recently underwent expansive renovations to transform the center into a beautiful state-of-the art setting. Featuring an expansive new therapy gym and a stellar multidisciplinary team, Briarwood caters to the needs of short-rehab patients and boasts a lower-than-national-average rate of patient re-hospitalization, consistently embracing and superseding all ACO criteria to assure the highest level of resident care.

“The results of this Survey ”, says Jenny Baldassarre, administrator at Briarwood “truly reflect the superior quality of care we provide, as well as the consistency in our staff’s commitment and dedication. It takes team work at every level to achieve a single Zero Deficiency status – especially two years in a row!”

Successful at keeping down its rate of patient re-hospitalization and boasting a 5 Star Rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), Briarwood exceeds ALL other facility averages in the Needham area and has now enhanced its warm and welcoming reputation by achieving deficiency free results for two consecutive years.
