2011 Annual Report
meeting the challenge of change
Remaining focused on our mission was ever more important in 2011 as the sweeping changes of healthcare reform began altering the landscape of patient care in New York State. The federal Accountable Care Act and the New York State Medicaid Redesign team recommendations require us to find new and cost-efficient ways in which to deliver better care, better experiences and better outcomes in an increasingly regulated healthcare environment. Change is not easy but it offers the opportunity to improve the ways we provide care and impact results.
Stanley H. Pantowich
Chairman, Board of Trustees
In light of all these changes to our caregiving environment, Jewish Home Lifecare remains dedicated to the principle that elders are entitled to live their lives with dignity and choice. We will continue this tradition of person-centered care and improve on it by developing partnerships and affiliations with other healthcare organizations; utilizing advanced technologies to an even greater degree; incorporating our teaching, research and clinical best practices into our daily regimen of care and, of course, seeking constant improvement in our communications and responsiveness to our clients and their families. By facing the challenges of healthcare reform, along with continuing to lead the movement away from the traditional nursing home, we’re setting the stage for Jewish Home Lifecare to be the standard of excellence in elder care for decades to come.
