Skilled Nursing Care at Chandler Hall

CMS 5 star logo

The Quaker concern for providing nursing care led to the establishment of Friends Nursing Home in 1973 on our campus here in Newtown, PA. Our commitment to individual, healing care has remained a constant since then. Along the way, we have become leaders in providing person-centered care with innovative, state-of-the-art practices.

Chandler Hall is Medicare/Medicaid certified. We provide short- and long-term skilled nursing care to members of the community.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services have given us an overall 5 star quality rating, with additional 5 stars for staffing and RN staffing. These are important factors for you to know when comparing skilled nursing services for your loved ones.

Our partnership with St. Mary’s Hospital offers extra health support for people released from the hospital but not ready to return to their own homes. We work closely with physicians to understand and respond to the needs of their patients.

Best yet, our therapy services and other care result in a particularly low re-hospitalization rate.
