2018 End of Year Summary

“Excellence is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well.” – John W. Gardner

We are wrapping up a monumental year of success and growth at Cedar Haven Healthcare Center in Lebanon. Serving people with excellence is our passion and we look for new ways to improve quality of life for our residents and make meaningful personal connections with them every day. Our facility has been an outstanding choice for both Long-term Skilled Nursing/Memory Care and Short-term Rehabilitation/Therapy services for over 50 years. This year we overcame adversity and reached important landmarks on our journey to becoming the premier choice for receiving skilled care in Central Pennsylvania in some unique ways. Here are some of the highlights from 2018:

  • Cedar Haven improved quality of care for our residents… again.

We were awarded 100% deficiency-free status on care-related survey items for the second time in three years and the few dietary deficiencies we received were corrected to the satisfaction of the Department of Health.

  • Cedar Haven improved consistency of care and personal relationships.

Familiar faces and personal connections are very important to us. We expanded our skilled team by hiring 175 new staff members and training them to provide the highest-quality care possible for our residents. As a result, we have almost completely eliminated the use of agency staff.

  • Cedar Haven improved compensation for our dedicated team.

We launched the T.E.A.M. (Team, Effort, Achievement, Money) Performance Compensation Program for our dedicated staff and offered improved wages, benefits, and perks.

These achievements could not have been possible without the hard work and commitment of our exceptional team. We have many exciting improvements on the horizon. There truly has never been a better time to come “Enjoy Life With Us” while you receive exceptional care at Cedar Haven. Please come in for a tour or visit additional pages on our website to learn more about the premier healthcare, fun activities, and enjoyable lifestyle we provide for our residents every day.

Staff Spotlight: Deb Muraira achieves 44 years of service at Cedar Haven

Staff Spotlight: Deb Muraira achieves 44 years of service at Cedar Haven

debatdeskThis Staff Spotlight was originally published in 2015 and has been updated to reflect Deb’s recent 44th anniversary at Cedar Haven. Thank you for your remarkable dedication to Cedar Haven and congratulations on your achievement!

We are kicking off our Staff Spotlight series by recognizing an experienced and accomplished staff member at our Cedar Haven Healthcare Center. On November 18th 2018, Deb Muraira celebrated her 44th anniversary working at our facility. For 36 years she worked as a Ward Secretary before spending five years in Central Supply and then ultimately moving to her current position as Director of Health Information.

The bulk of Deb’s responsibilities at Cedar Haven are related to requesting, updating, and managing medical records. With recent ICD-10 changes in medical coding and exciting technological advances at the facility such as moving away from paper charts, there are many details to keep in order. Deb spends time working in her office and attending to records on the floors of the facility, where she assists the secretaries whom she supervises.

When asked about her favorite aspect of her job, Deb remarked that working at Cedar Haven has been a great fit because she’s definitely a “people person.”

“I like everything about my job,” Deb remarked. “I have always loved the local and hometown feel here at Cedar Haven.” Some of her favorite memories from her tenure at the facility include when residents have lined up near her desk to visit and chat. She noted that “a lot was learned about that generation when they would sit and talk to you about their lives.”

Congratulations on your 44th anniversary at Cedar Haven, Deb! Thank you for all of the great work you have done and continue to do with our staff and residents.
