Touching Lives a World Away

LANCASTER — It’s no easy feat to build a health clinic from scratch.

You need all of the standard medical equipment found in any doctor’s office, but you also need the basic supplies of any functional workplace.

Whether it’s a stethoscope or a stapler, it’s all on the wish list for Dr. Edna Markaddy, a Leominster-based physician currently gathering donations for five clinics she’s planning to open in Ghana. Markaddy, the founder of MedHealth Centers, has partnered with River Terrace Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center in Lancaster to collect the items she needs.

River Terrace featured in the Telegram & Gazette’s “Medical Memos” column

We are proud to have received the Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award from the American College of Health Care Administrators (ACHCA), a nonprofit professional association for post-acute and aging services leaders.

Every year, the ACHCA recognizes top-performing skilled nursing facilities across the country through the Eli Pick Facility Leadership award. Top-performers are identified through MDS quality indicators, occupancy, and three years of survey data. The ACHCA believes that facility excellence is a reflection of leadership excellence, and the purpose of the award is to recognize administrators of these facilities.

“It is an honor to be recognized by the ACHCA given that only 11 percent of skilled nursing facilities nationwide qualify,” said our very own Miatta Green, Administrator here at River Terrace Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center. “We will keep working hard to ensure we remain a leader in skilled nursing and continue to provide our community with excellent care.”
