Bonners Ferry, ID – Boundary Community Hospital is proud to announce that their Extended Care Facility and Nursing Home has been recognized by the State of Idaho with their ninth L. Jean Schoonover Award for Excellence in Caring – the only nursing home in North Idaho to be so recognized. Recipients of the award must demonstrate a dedication and commitment to providing the highest quality of care to the residents they serve.
In addition, the Extended Care Facility completed their annual survey by the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare. The surveyors reported that the survey was 100% deficiency free. The Nutrition Services Department also had a 100% deficiency free report. These are excellent examples of the quality of care that our hospital and extended care facility employees are providing to the community, especially those that need long term and skilled nursing care.
The Extended Care Facility at Boundary Community Hospital is a licensed skilled nursing home with a physician on staff to supervise each resident’s care providing both long-term and rehabilitative or short-term residency. The highly-skilled staff understand and specialize in long term care, bringing a special nurturing atmosphere that can be felt every day throughout the facility.
An example – recent fishing outing to Smith Lake.
