The Orchard wins two national awards

Teamwork and the dedication to treating patients like family members has earned The Orchard, a Riverside healthy living community in Warsaw, two national honors.

The American Health Care Association and the National Center for Assisted Living honored The Orchard’s approach to long-term care with a 2017 Silver Award, one of just six awarded to Virginia long-term care facilities and 191 facilities nationwide.

The silver award identifies recipients as one of the nation’s best providers of long-term and post-acute care, as well as assisted living. It’s the second level of three distinctions, with the gold award the highest.

The second honor, recognition as a 5-star nursing facility, comes from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. This federal agency awards a maximum of five stars in its quality rating system, which takes into consideration how well a facility and its staff care for residents’ physical and clinical needs, along with health inspections and staffing.
