Life Care Center Of Hixson Earns Company’s Gold Rehab Standard

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

Life Care Center of Hixson has achieved Gold rehab standard in parent company Life Care Centers of America’s 111-point quality audit.

Each Life Care building undergoes an annual audit of its core rehab program, assessing how the team works with other departments to provide a cohesive plan of care. Auditors (regional rehab associates with Life Care) score the rehab teams on four key areas: environment, human resources, clinical programming and systems management. 

Facilities that achieve Gold standard are shown to have a strong, stable therapy team that is eligible to develop a specialty program based on the community’s needs.

Life Care Center of Hixson had the highest scores on the audit of all nine buildings in Life Care Centers of America’s Cumberland Region. 

“I am extremely proud of the Gold rehab standard score,” said Julie Sosebee, rehab services manager at Life Care Center of Hixson. “This reflects our therapists’ dedication to providing excellent therapy services while working with all the other departments in the facility. Our goal is to improve the quality of life of our residents, and our score reflects our commitment to that.”

Life Care Center of Hixson, at 5798 Hixson Home Place, is one of 25 skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities in Tennessee operated or managed by Life Care Centers of America.

Founded in 1976, Life Care is a nationwide health care company. With headquarters in Cleveland, Life Care operates or manages more than 220 nursing, post-acute and Alzheimer’s centers in 28 states. For more information about Life Care, visit lcca.com.
