OAKLAND, N.J., Aug. 2, 2018 – Oakland Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center has become the first Marquis Health Services member to incorporate a newly branded, hospitality-focused Guest Services program. Offering a wide range of concierge-style support and personal services, the initiative aims to elevate lifestyle and convenience for residents at the 215-bed skilled nursing facility.
“Our Guest Services introduction reflects a new paradigm in which hospitality meets healthcare,” said Jennifer Hertzog, Marquis Health Services vice president of marketing and business development, Mid-Atlantic region. “We have assembled a menu of amenities and support programs that typically might be found at a resort hotel or luxury apartment community. We are thrilled to launch the program at Oakland Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center.”
Marquis Guest Services provides a range of elevated services. This includes assistance with errands, such as pick-ups from local grocery and department stores; help with banking needs; coordination of pet visits; connections for personal spiritual and pastoral support; and planning for family gatherings and celebrations. Guest Services also offers on-site barbers, beauticians and manicurists on a regular basis.
“Our Oakland Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center patients and families have expressed great enthusiasm for the new Guest Services program,” said Norman Rokeach, chief executive officer of Marquis Health Services. “At Marquis, we prioritize quality of life as well as outstanding healthcare for our patients. Taking the hospitality element to the next level is a natural evolution.”
This summer, Oakland Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center also introduced telemedicine service through national provider TripleCare. Providing virtual access to a network of experienced physicians, this high-tech offering complements residents’ regular bedside physician visits. By offering support 24/7, the service is intended to help treat patients in place and aid in reducing hospital transfers.
The augmented lifestyle and healthcare offerings follow Marquis Health Services completing a $3.5 million property renovation at Oakland Rehabilitation &Healthcare Center. Located at 20 Break Neck Road, the facility offers sub-acute rehab, dementia care and long-term care wings, and specializes in cardio pulmonary and orthopedic rehab. Oakland Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center achieved a five-star rating in U.S. News and World Report’s 2017 “Best Nursing Homes,” marking its second consecutive top-performer rating. The facility has a five-star rating from the Centers of Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) as well.
