Ownership— For profit corporation

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 2 stars out of 5

Primary concerns: Multiple serious health inspection deficiencies and inadequate staff levels are the reason this center only managed a single star rating.

This center is one of many examples of what may occur when a staff is unequipped to tend to the basic needs of each patient.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
