Menno Haven Rehabilitation Center Wins LeadingAge PA 2020 Innovation of the Year Distinguished Service Award
CHAMBERSBURG, Pa –Menno Haven is excited to announce that the Rehabilitation Center has won the LeadingAge PA 2020 Innovation of the Year Distinguished Service Award.
This prestigious award recognizes a program or service that is a model of innovation and excellence and that contributes significantly to the quality of life of individuals served. Deanna Beins, Administrator of the Rehabilitation Center says, “We put a lot of thought into the design to provide the best recovery atmosphere possible. It has been great to see how our guests have benefited from our planning efforts.”
The Center has 44 private rooms that Menno Haven calls “suites”, each with a private bathroom. Other features include:
- The state-of-the-art therapy gym has the newest technology to help aid in recovery.
- The therapy gym overlooks a beautiful therapeutic courtyard that serves the dual purpose of providing outdoor gathering space and functions as an extension of the therapy gym. Walking paths of varying materials, textures, and inclines provide guests with passive therapy opportunities.
- The building is filled with amenities such as a salon & spa and café.
- An on-site Wellspan Health Clinic that serves Menno Haven residents and the general public.
Last year the Menno Haven Rehabilitation Center was officially WELL Certified to the Gold level by The International WELL Building Institute. Davis says, “From the moment you enter the front door you will see this place is different. WELL design incorporates research-based elements intended to promote the physical, emotional, and spiritual health of guests.” A few examples of elements included in the building to achieve this standard are UV lamps in the HVAC cooling coils to ensure the best air quality, whole-building water filters, abundant natural light, and a light system designed to match circadian rhythms. Davis says, “This is the first senior living project built to WELL standards in the world.”
