The Ohio Department of Aging and the Office of the State Long-Term Care Ombudsman
conduct a biennial satisfaction survey of residents in long-term care facilities to measure
satisfaction with their quality of care and quality of life. Developed by the Scripps Gerontology Center at Miami University of Ohio, the survey was administered from August to December 2017 by Vital Research using structured, face-to-face interviews with residents. A total of 23,145 residents in 936 nursing homes and 12,849 residents of 687 assisted living facilities were interviewed
Tiffin Rehabilitation Center, located at 48 St. Lawrence Dr. in Tiffin, is a Volunteers of America facility providing short-term providing physical, occupational and speech therapies. The 20 bed facility was opened adjacent to the Mercy Health-Tiffin campus and Sojourn at Seneca in 2015.
The Mercy Tiffin Hospital campus is growing with the addition of a new facility. On September 11, 2014, the Volunteers of America (VOA) invited the public to the official groundbreaking event for the new Tiffin Rehabilitation Center and Sojourn at Seneca. The groundbreaking event was held at 5:00 pm at Mercy Tiffin Hospital, located at 45 St. Lawrence Drive in Tiffin, Ohio. The groundbreaking featured several speakers, including hospital administrators, Mayor Aaron Montz, Mercy Tiffin President & CEO Lynn Detterman, VOA national President Mike King and other people associated with the project. Following the groundbreaking event, a reception was held on the first floor of the McMullen Conference Center. The $9 million project is being funded by the Volunteers of America, who operates Autumnwood Care Center in Tiffin.
The facility, set to open in the fall of 2015, is expected to employ 55 and will have two separate wings. In one wing, the structure is to house 20 transitional skilled nursing beds. In the other wing, 24 beds are to be available for seniors in need of short-term mental health services. The project estimates at around $22 million. The facility is to be operated by Sally St. Clair, the current Executive Director of the Volunteers of America Autumnwood Care Center, who will administer both Tiffin facilities.
