BRANDON, FL - Hawthorne Health & Rehab has been named a five-star facility by CMS, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, a federal government agency. To date, Hawthorne is the only five-star facility in the Brandon area.

“We have served the Brandon community for nearly two decades,” said Deborah Franklin, Executive Director for Florida Living Options, owner and operator of Hawthorne. “Our families and residents know we are committed to quality care and it makes me so proud to see that our dedication to a higher standard of living is recognized by CMS and AHCA.”

CMS scores long-term care facilities across the nation on a number of factors, including annual surveys, staffing time spent per resident, and quality measures from resident assessments during care. The scoring is updated as annual surveys results are provided by the Florida Agency for Healthcare Administration.

“Our employees know that working at Hawthorne is more than a job; it’s a calling to protect and care for the elderly,” said Vernon Zeger, Executive Director of Hawthorne’s Brandon campus. “Whether our residents are with us for rehab or long-term care, they feel at home. Our valuable employees make all the difference in their lives.” 

In January 2015, Hawthorne Village will celebrate their 20 year anniversary and will be inviting the community to join former and current employees, residents and their families to commemorate the special event. Hawthorne Health & Rehab provides long-term care and Bounce Back rehabilitation. The Brandon campus also features an Assisted Living Facility, which includes a wing for Garden Court, and Independent Living apartments.
