CarDon & Associates is pleased to announce a new partnership in our continuing commitment to provide quality outcomes for our residents and short-term rehabilitation patients. Effective June 15, 2017, CarDon entered into a contractual agreement with Acute Rehab Medical Specialists (ARMS) to provide corporate medical director oversight. As a group of medical providers that specialize in compassionate, high-quality care for patients transitioning through the healthcare continuum, ARMS is a natural fit with CarDon’s mission to be the leading provider of inspired living and compassionate care to those we serve.
ARMS is a group of multi-specialty physicians and nurse practitioners who are experienced in providing near-hospital level care in the post-acute setting. As such, their model has been successful at reducing 30-day readmission rates. In fact, when compared to Indiana averages, rehab patients receiving care with ARMS have a 35 percent lower risk of return to the ER and a 28 percent lower risk of re-hospitalization.
In their new role, ARMS will partner with CarDon & Associates’ clinical team to develop, guide and direct the clinical programs offered by CarDon & Associates’ communities. This partnership will also serve to increase the communication with our medical directors, incorporating their feedback into new process development. This oversight will assist us in providing exemplary services and improving quality outcomes for our residents, patients and valued hospital partners.
Please join us in welcoming ARMS as a valued partner.
