Orchard Hill Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center and Marquis Health Consulting Services joined in a ribbon cutting event at its Towson’s skilled nursing facility to celebrate that completion of a $5 million renovation and modernization of the center.
Care team members and health care colleagues at the Towson skilled nursing facility gathered for the event, where an executive citation from Baltimore County Executive John A. Olszewski, Jr., was presented.
“Orchard Hill has been completely transformed into a modern, homelike environment for residents — one that accommodates progressive skilled nursing care and services,” said Nikki Gachot, regional director of market development for Marquis Health Consulting Services, which supports the facility and spearheaded the renovation.
The renovation includes the addition of a 2,500-square-foot therapy gym and the incorporation of activities of daily living suite, according to a news release. The gym has a smart car and technology to support the delivery of progressive rehab services, according to a news release.
Orchard Hill’s new design incorporates glass dividing open spaces, wide hallways, well-appointed rooms with contemporary fixtures and furnishings, updated lounge areas for family visits and a landscaped outdoor courtyard, according to a news release.
“The updates pair a high level of functionality with colorful and uplifting aesthetic touches,” Gachot said. ”It’s gorgeous.”
During the renovation process, Orchard Hill and Marquis enhanced the facility’s specialized programming in partnership with leading regional health care providers which include specialized cardiac care, palliative care, physiatry, chronic kidney disease management programs and a pulmonary rehab program featuring a full-time respiratory therapist.
Orchard Hill also developed a resource library with physician-curated content, and it can be accessed on the facility’s website, orchardhillrehab.com. The facility is a 134-bed skilled nursing facility located at 111 West Road, and it provides post-hospital care, short-term rehab and long-term residential care.
Marquis Health Consulting Services is based in Brick, New Jersey, and is a nursing home consulting company currently supporting Mid-Atlantic and New England facilities with about 6,000 skilled nursing and assisted living beds.
