Elmhurst Is Deficiency-Free After State Survey 2019

Elmhurst, The House of Friendship received a “deficiency-free” designation from the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources, Office of Health Facility Licensure and Certification, according to Jamie Crow, executive director.

Elmhurst, a non-profit, licensed assisted living residence, has 129-years of service of the area’s senior citizens. Today, Elmhurst offers housing with all amenities for women, men, and couples at its campus in the Pleasant Valley section of Wheeling. The residence is located on the former Samuel Bloch family estate which was donated to the organization in 1940.

The deficiency-free rating was awarded Elmhurst following a three-day licensure survey conducted by representatives of the state in March 2019. Crow noted that the results of the survey are a further indication that the Elmhurst staff and administration continue to provide the highest quality, safe, secure environment for its residents.

“Elmhurst has a history of offering older adults a wonderful quality of life with the finest care, a stimulating array of activities, and an emphasis on staying fit and well. Every member of our staff, many of whom have been with us for more than 20 years, take pride in their work and love our residents as family.” Crow said, adding, “To continue to be awarded a deficiency-free status is a testament to the staff at Elmhurst.”
