Kidron Bethel Village and Schowalter Villa recognized for excellence

Bluestem Communities’ life plan communities closed out the 2023 year with a string of awards, recognitions of excellence and ongoing commitments to exemplary care. 

Both Kidron Bethel Village and Schowalter Villa received the highest possible rating, “High Performing,” in U.S. News & World Report’s annual Best Nursing Homes for 2024 results. The rating considers more than 15,000 skilled nursing care providers across the country for quality measures in long-term care and short-term rehab, and 19% earn the highest rating. The ratings help equip people with information they can use to help choose the right care setting for themselves or a loved one. 

Schowalter Villa’s Mullet Place Assisted Living received an annual survey visit late in the year that resulted in only one low level deficiency that administrators state is easily correctable. In Kansas, surveys return an average of more than seven deficiencies per site. “We’re grateful for departments that work diligently to better residents’ lives and make quality of care and life a priority at Schowalter Villa,” said Executive Director Jeff Ritcha.
