June 11, 2020 – Lafayette, LA – SCP Health (SCP) and Cornerstone at the Ranch (Cornerstone), a skilled nursing facility (SNF), announce the launch of a new post-acute care program to improve clinical outcomes and quality-of-life for residents at Cornerstone.
SCP provides a comprehensive approach to real-time post-acute care for residents in SNFs by applying its expertise in quality outcomes, consistent care, and patient experience to the skilled nursing facility environment. In this new venture, residents and care teams at Cornerstone at the Ranch will have access to a 24/7 clinical care team and nurse call center.
“This model allows for better care coordination between the hospital’s clinical team and case management teams, and the medical professionals caring for patients in skilled nursing facilities after discharge,” explains Lisa Fry, Chief Growth Officer at SCP Health. “A post-acute care program of this nature grants SNF residents improved clinical outcomes and a better care experience for themselves and their families.”
SCP’s post-acute care program offers:
- A local physician – typically a member of the local hospital’s Hospital Medicine team – performs biweekly rounds on residents and can serve as the Medical Director of the program overseeing a team of NP/PAs.
- NP/PAs staffed at the SNF are on call 24/7 and round on residents during the weekdays. They also act as a liaison to the physician(s) and are backed by SCP 24/7.
- Access to a 24/7 nurse call line with triage protocols to help prevent readmission and improve outcomes.
“Now, more than ever, it’s important that attentive and expert clinical support be available for our residents, who are among the most vulnerable population during this current Coronavirus outbreak,” says Ricky Bonin, Chief Operating Officer of Paramount Healthcare, the management company for Cornerstone at the Ranch.
SCP is currently deploying post-acute care programs in assisted living and skilled nursing facilities in areas across the United States. To learn more about post-acute care services, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
