Genoa Retirement Village has received perfect marks on their annual recertification survey from the Ohio State Board of Health. The survey team recently visited the campus and spent several days reviewing patient records, employee files, and observing the delivery of services at the health campus. At the conclusion of the survey, the facility was notified that they were in 100 percent compliance with state and federal regulations, with no deficiencies cited.

According to data provided by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Online Survey Certification and Reporting (as of September 2011), only 12.8 percent of Ohio’s 961 Medicare/Medicaid certified long-term care facilities received deficiency free surveys.

“We have a great group of dedicated caregivers at Genoa Retirement Village,” commented Julie McKitrick, Executive Director. “We strive to provide quality services that exceed our residents’ and families’ expectations, and we are thrilled that we have received confirmation of the quality of the care we provide from the State Board of Health.”

The food service department at Graytown Elementary School recently was presented with an Award of Merit from the Ottawa County Board of Health. Diane Kershaw, Nyla Denman and Ken Ohlemacher accepted the award.

Since 1983, the Ottawa County Board of Health has presented Awards of Merit to those licensed operations in Ottawa County which have maintained a high degree of sanitation and safety, according to Nancy Osborn, health commissioner. The annual award signifies a high level of concern by the operators, not just for meeting the rules and regulations, but in providing an operation that exceeds the minimum requirements.

Two of the eight organizations given the award are in The Press circulation area. The other is Young’s Suburban on the Portage, a manufactured home park.
