All rooms are private with private bathrooms and showers. Come and go as you please with the convenience of meals and full-care nursing to assist you in recovering.

Choosing Nursing Care: What is the Difference Between Non-profit and For-profit?

The Institute of Medicine documented differences in the quality of care between non-profit and for-profit nursing homes in their report, “For-Profit Enterprise in Health Care.” They found that for-profit facilities, often associated with a chain-operated corporation, “tended to devote fewer resources to direct patient care, resulting in poorer quality of care for residents.” They went on to find that in the areas of resources, licensure violations, complaints and measures of quality, non-profit nursing facilities generally provided better, higher quality care.

These findings were substantiated by several other studies including an investigative report by The New York Times in September, 2007, which found that non-profit nursing facilities generally had higher nurse staffing levels and fewer health care deficiencies than for-profit facilities.

Additionally, this was followed by a Government Accountability Office (GAO) report in 2011 that nursing facilities with the poorest quality were more likely to be for-profit, a part of a chain and have almost 24% fewer registered nurses per residents per day than their non-profit counterparts.

To make an informed decision about your nursing care needs, ask questions about the ownership and sponsorship of the facility you are visiting.

A message from Kris Awtrey, CEO of Presbyterian Manor, Inc., regarding Coronavirus:

I would like to take a moment to give a brief update on the preparations that
Presbyterian Manor, Inc. is taking in regards to the Coronavirus (also known as COVID-19).

Presbyterian Manor and the House of Hope’s number one priority is the safety of our residents and staff.

COVID-19 has not been diagnosed at Presbyterian Manor or the House of Hope. However, for our residents' safety we are suspending all visitation in the Perkins-Prothro Healthcare Center and the House of Hope campus. We are also asking that guests only visit our independent living area if it is necessary for the health and/or well-being of the resident.

We are monitoring this situation closely and have already implemented steps to help prevent the spread in our community. We are in close contact with the Department of Health and Human Services and the CDC. If there should be any confirmed reports, we will implement even more stringent infection control procedures immediately.

Again, please be assured that Presbyterian Manor is doing everything possible to keep our residents safe. We ask that you remain vigilant regarding this matter and if you have any questions, please call me at any time. Thank you again for your understanding during this difficult and concerning time.
