What is the Bethany Difference?
Updated: Jan 23
All businesses will work to communicate what sets them apart and why they offer the best value to their prospective customers. For us at Bethany, this communication can often take the form of a referral from a friend or family member. We are humbled by the many contacts we receive from current or previous residents and their families along with prospective families that indicate it was through word of mouth that they first discovered the Bethany Difference.
At Bethany, we define our Bethany Difference as the defining characteristics of our operation that separate us in the fields of skilled rehabilitation, assisted living, and long-term care. The key tenants of the Bethany Difference include:
- The only facility in Stark County whose medical team includes two physicians and two nurse
practitioners; including a board-certified and fellowship-trained Medical Director who are at Bethany daily
- An accountable, professional, and dedicated staff of nurses, nurse aides, housekeepers, maintenance staff, dietary staff, activities staff, and administrative staff that deeply care about serving our residents
- Bethany’s area best staffing ratios and quality measures
- An independent family-owned and operated facility in an industry dominated by corporate chains
While some may view these tenants as talking points, we at Bethany see them as our guiding principles. These guiding principles are experienced on a daily basis on our campus, and we believe are the reason for the generous promotions of current and previous residents and families.
When researching facilities for yourself or a loved one, there are many factors to consider. Some of these factors can be determined through internet research and informational material. However, there are some aspects of selecting the right facility that are difficult to recognize through a computer screen or paper. By setting foot in our building, we believe the Bethany Difference comes alive and can quickly be recognized in the personal contact with our staff, residents, and family members. This difference plays out in so many different ways: individualized medical care guided by our experienced medical team, personalized touches by our dietary staff to ensure meals are ENJOYED, special attention to the mental and physical well-being of our residents by all members of the Bethany team, the relationships developed between our staff and residents that go beyond just caring for their basic needs, and the list can go on.
Making the decision about the right facility for yourself or a loved one is a challenging process. We believe it important to look beyond the readily available information to understand the true value a facility can offer you or your loved one. Discover the Bethany Difference today.
