As part of our seamless continuum of care, Kingsway Arms has developed post-acute programs and services to meet the varying health needs of our residents. With an integrated approach to resident care, Kingsway can be used as an intermediate step from hospital or rehab to home.
Providing these services in our nursing center allows us to better manage some chronic and post-acute conditions and promote shortened recovery periods. The services may also reduce the need for hospitalization for some residents, thereby reducing transfer trauma and helping to maintain the highest quality of life.
Kingsway Arms is licensed by the New York State Department of Health, and is approved for Medicare and Medicaid and is a member of the American Health Care Association, the New York State Health Facilities Association, the American College of Health Care Administrators and New York Association for Long Term Care Administrators.
