On Nov. 17, 2017, Life Care Center of Hendersonville, North Carolina, was selected to be one of five facilities in Henderson and Buncome counties to be a post-acute preferred provider.
“As part of this network, we will be collaborating with Park Ridge Hospital and other post-acute providers in the community to improve patient care at the local level,” shared Kathy Carver, director of business development. “This is an honor to be one of five considering the large number of facilities in these counties.”
Carver and Thomas Hager, executive director, went through a series of interviews with the hospital’s director of case management and director of transitions in care. The preferred providers were chosen based on criteria of star rating, state survey results and clinical data, including the percentage of patients who returned to the hospital.
