Rehab services voted Best of Prince William County

For the second year in a row, Westminster at Lake Ridge’s rehabilitation services have been recognized as the Best in Prince William County! 

The award has special meaning for Cathy Farmer, Director of Health Services, because it’s the result of votes cast by readers in Prince William Today’s Best of Prince William 2015 poll. More than 46,000 votes were cast in the reader poll in categories from agriculture to shopping. Westminster at Lake Ridge’s rehab services won in the Health and Medical category. 

“It’s really an honor to receive this award,” Farmer says. “It shows that in the community we are considered the best rehab facility. People in the community know us and have used us. We have lots of folks who always see if they can come to us again.” 

Westminster at Lake Ridge’s Health Services Center helps patients recover, regain their physical abilities and get back to their active lives after surgery, injury or illness. The rehab wing consists of 16 beds and a rehabilitation gym, but the Center can accommodate additional rehab patients if needed, since all of its 60 beds are certified for skilled nursing. 

Using a multidisciplinary approach, the Center’s compassionate, highly trained health professionals create a care plan tailored to the needs of each patient. Team members are drawn from a panel of consultants including the Medical Director, a Physiatrist who consults on complex rehab needs, and other specialists as needed. The Center provides 24-hour professional nursing care as well as restorative Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy services delivered by caring, certified practitioners. Intravenous Therapy, if needed, is administered by specially trained and certified nurses.  Wound-healing treatment and consultation is also available. A registered dietitian supervises preparation of tasty, healthful meals. 

Each and every staff member is dedicated to restoring and maintaining optimal wellness in body, mind and spirit while honoring the value and dignity of each patient—qualities that have been recognized by the Prince William Today readers for two consecutive years. 

Westminster at Lake Ridge’s Health Services Center has also been given a 5-star rating by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The agency ranks skilled nursing facilities according to 11 Quality Measures based on clinical data and daily staffing levels per resident. The 5-star rating is the highest awarded by Medicare and indicates that Westminster at Lake Ridge’s Health Services Center ranks much above state and national averages. 

As a Continuing Care Retirement Community, Westminster at Lake Ridge offers all levels of retirement living: independent living, assisted living and long-term, skilled nursing care. The Health Services Center offers a healing retreat in a natural sanctuary on the beautiful Westminster at Lake Ridge campus. 

We’re especially proud to receive this singular honor from Prince William Today’s readers, because it illustrates our passion for engaging with the Lake Ridge-Occoquan-Woodbridge community. Congratulations to the dedicated professionals whose skills and compassion who made it possible!
