For the third year in a row a poll of Harrisburg Magazine’s more than 30,000 readers resulted in Homeland Center being selected as the Readers’ Choice for Best Long-Term Care Facility.
“We are honored to again be recognized for our quality service to the central Pennsylvania region,’’ said Barry S. Ramper II, Homeland’s president and CEO. “For 147 years Homeland Center has focused on the needs of our area’s residents.’’
Since 1998 the magazine has asked its readers to rank a wide range of area businesses and services from restaurants and day spas to financial consultants and pet groomers.
Homeland is a licensed not-for-profit Continuing Care Retirement Community and a designated Medicare Five-Star Nursing Care Facility. Occupying a full city block in uptown Harrisburg, Homeland offers personal and skilled nursing care. A 21-bed wing houses the unit dedicated to the special needs of those with Alzheimer’s or dementia-related diseases.
In keeping with its dedication to serving the community, Homeland Center established Homeland Hospice to help patients in the end stages of life and provide emotional support for their families.
“We truly believe that caring for the elderly is a privilege and an honor,’’ Ramper said. “Our work every day is grounded in that philosophy.”
