Outof a total of 439 Iowa nursing homes, only 80 are rated as top performing for 2018-19.
“We wish to thank all of our staff for their dedication to maintaining high standards and providing quality service to our residents. This recognition is due to a great team effort under the leadership of Director of Nursing Morgan Beck and Administrator/RN Tiffany Criswell,” said Executive Administrator Dion Schrack. “Credit also goes to the volunteer board members of St. Francis Manor for always putting the residents first and allowing us to prioritize financial resources so that we can attract and maintain excellent staff members and avoid using temporary agency staff. This is a great achievement in a very tight labor market.”
