Otterbein Portage Valley earns perfect survey score
Assisted living communities housing 17 or more people are licensed and surveyed annually by the Ohio Department of Health. Ohio currently has 600 assisted living communities which must meet 324 regulations to achieve a perfect survey. Each year, less than 50 percent achieve that goal.
“I am very proud of all of the staff,” stated Tom Keith, regional executive director in a company release. “It takes a real team effort to achieve these results. It is nice to see that the staff’s hard work and genuine love for our residents is recognized.”
