The Multipurpose Room of Ottawa County Riverview Healthcare Campus was filled with staff members and their family members March 1 for a special night of recognition and celebration.
The evening began with a presentation that featured facility-wide honors Riverview achieved in 2011 including the admission of 257 residents/patients and the return of 181 of those admissions, or 70 percent, back to the community. The facility also celebrated its Medicare 5 Star rating, which the facility has maintained for nine consecutive quarters. The facility has been named on the U.S. News and World Reports listing of “Best Nursing Homes” for both 2011 and 2012. The facility also achieved a perfect state survey and has been nominated by fellow Port Clinton Chamber Members for the 2011 Lighthouse Award. In July of 2011, Riverview faced cuts to its Medicaid reimbursement at $18,000 per month and again faced cuts from Medicare in October. Despite these drastic cuts, the facility was able to secure a $61,508 surplus for the year.
