Open House Showcases Changes at Neptune City, N.J., Skilled Nursing Facility
NEPTUNE CITY, N.J., June 28, 2018 – Marquis Health Services, Coral Harbor Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center staff, healthcare colleagues and dignitaries celebrated the completion of a $2.5 million renovation at the 110-bed Neptune City skilled nursing facility during a professional open house event in June.
More than 200 participants enjoyed tours of Coral Harbor, a formal ribbon-cutting ceremony, live entertainment, and refreshments. New Jersey State Health Commissioner Dr. Shereef M. Elnahal was among the attendees.
“Touring Coral Harbor Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center you can tell that Marquis Health Services not only pays a lot of attention to aesthetics – it’s a really beautiful place – but also to what happens behind all of that in the skilled nursing care provided,” Dr. Elnahal said. “Marquis has a great record on quality in our state.”
Coral Harbor provides post-hospital care, short-term rehab, and long-term residential care. Marquis Health Services launched the renovation immediately following its acquisition of the Monmouth County property in 2016. Highlighting the physical improvements, the firm completed a complete overhaul of the long-term care floor and created dedicated sub-acute rehabilitation suites. The work also included the construction of a new therapy gym with state-of-the-art equipment and other enhancements.
Coral Harbor’s programming has been expanded as well, with new specialty cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation programs operating seven days per week. Piped-in oxygen in the sub-acute rehabilitation suites enhances the facility’s pulmonary care services. Additionally, Coral Harbor has introduced a chronic kidney disease management program.
“On behalf of all of us at Marquis Health Services, I thank our guests for joining us to celebrate Coral Harbor’s progress,” noted Norman Rokeach, chief executive officer. “We are thrilled with the outcome of this effort to create a modern, homelike environment for our patients and staff, and facilitate the evolution of our programming.”
Coral Harbor continues to partner with medical providers and area hospitals – including the adjacent Jersey Shore University Medical Center – to develop offerings that meet community needs. Located at 2050 6th Ave., Coral Harbor maintains a five-star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and this spring received a nursing excellence award from the New Jersey Association of Directors of Nursing Administration/Long Term Care, Inc., for earning a 12-month deficiency-free survey from the New Jersey Department of Health.
