Welcome to Mahoning Valley Nursing and Rehabilitation Center is situated in the foothills of the Pocono Mountains, and only a short drive from the Mahoning Valley exit of the Pennsylvania Turnpike. The facility is compromised of 142 Skilled Nursing beds. Along with our dedicated nursing staff, we have a full complimentary therapy staff who administer physical, speech, and occupational therapy to our residents. We are proud of the fact that many of our residents are admitted for short-term rehabilitation and are able to return to their home or community following their short-term stay. We also offer a comfort care program and hospice services should that need arise.
Located in a peaceful rural setting, the facility is very unique in that it is family owned and operated. At Mahoning Valley, our staff and residents are all part of one family, and we are one of the few skilled nursing facilities to be able to make that claim. It is the hallmark of the very care we give. Others have referred to our care as, “neighbors caring for neighbors”. We are very proud of the care we give and strive to maintain the home-like atmosphere we are known for. Our facility is its own community where care can be given around the clock, every day. Whether you are looking for short-term care, long-term care, or respite care, our staff is able to provide that care 24/7.
We understand the difficult decisions that come with having to place a loved one in a skilled nursing facility. Many members of our staff have, or have had, members of their own family as residents of our facility. We know, from a family member’s perspective, what it is like to be in a situation where long-term care placement is warranted. Our social service department is dedicated to helping families with the admissions process as well as the transition process, and our nurses and certified nurse aides support that transition process as they are rendering direct nursing care.
Our facility has many fine physicians and consultants who provide medical, surgical, and podiatric care to our residents. Care and services, by physicians and physician extenders, is overseen by our facility’s Medical Director. The facility also offers diagnostic laboratory and x-rays services as ordered by the residents’ physicians as well as daily pharmacy services. Our care is a team approach and the staff members of all departments work closely with each of our residents and families to provide individualized care based on that teamwork.
Each of the wings and dining areas of our facility is decorated with hundreds of beautifully framed prints as well as homemade quilts and crocheted items which help to create a warm, homelike, and inviting atmosphere. The facility is centrally cooled and heated, and we maintain a free-standing generator, which is able to fully power the facility, in the event of an emergency, for however long it is needed. These features enable our facility to continue to maintain a homelike and inviting atmosphere no matter what the weather conditions, outside, maybe. A freestanding laundry building provides laundry services for the facility which is also operational every day of the year, in combination with full housekeeping and maintenance services, all of which add another level of comfort, security, and cleanliness for our residents and visitors. Cleanliness and attention to detail is another hallmark of our resident care and services.
We employ a licensed cosmetologist on staff, and our personal care room is equipped to offer hair care services and styling for our residents.
An outdoor porch and courtyard provide opportunities for relaxation and activities for residents and families.
