Virginia Nursing Home Named America’s Best

December 29, 2020

For Woodbine Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center in Alexandria, Virginia, recognition as the state’s No. 1 nursing home in Newsweek’s “America’s Best Nursing Homes 2021” speaks to quality services and patient care at the 307-bed skilled nursing facility. Woodbine has the state’s largest licensed skilled nursing capacity. 

 

Newsweek, in partnership with global data research firm Statista Inc., established its “America’s Best Nursing Homes 2021,” recognizing the top 400 out of 10,647 homes in the 20 most populous states. The ranking is based on performance data, peer recommendations and the facility’s handling of the COVID-19 threat. Woodbine maintains a five-star rating in quality measures from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). 

 

“This recent honor is a clear testament to our leadership, and the entire team’s commitment to clinical excellence and outstanding care for our patients,” said Woodbine’s Jennifer Patrick, admissions director. 

 

Woodbine provides post-hospital care, short-term rehab and long-term residential care, with a range of progressive, specialty skilled nursing services. Among them, Woodbine offers a Ventilator & Respiratory Care program, with a dedicated 50-bed ventilator unit; it is the only offering of its kind within a skilled nursing setting in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area.  

 

Woodbine’s pulmonary rehabilitation specialization caters to patients who are ventilator and tracheostomy dependent, have debilitating respiratory conditions and disorders, and who could benefit from 24/7 care provided by respiratory therapists, pulmonologists and specially trained nurses and caregivers. Dr. Samir Al-Khouri, one of the area’s leading pulmonologists, oversees the 25-year-old program. 

 

Woodbine’s multi-disciplinary approach to care combines respiratory therapies with physical, occupational and speech therapies, among other services. 

 

“Our care team is well known for its skill in handling complex issues for chronic ventilator and trach patients, many of whom have co-morbidities,” added Patrick. “We have drawn patients from well beyond our immediate market – including transfers from Florida, North Carolina and West Virginia.”
