Mili’s leadership style is all about empowerment, and that’s one of the things that keeps everything running so well at Deptford. His team follows his example of seeing what needs to be done, and doing it. Everyone on Mili’s team knows that the residents come first, and that’s evident everywhere, but especially when it comes to building relationships, getting to know the residents and their families, and what makes them all so special. And that has helped to create the warm personal atmosphere here that makes everyone feel so welcome.
Care comes first at every Centers Health Care facility, but Festus tells everyone on his staff that compassion comes first. “You can’t really take care of someone unless you put yourself in their place for a minute. When you understand your patient, you can care for them better”. And that philosophy is witnessed by every resident at the Hammonton Center. When a resident tells you that being cared for here is like being cared for by a trusted family member, you know that compassion is behind it all. And everyone’s well-being is better for it, thanks to the leadership of Festus.
Neha joined the Hammonton Center family in 2014 and brought her personal philosophy of “working the whole patient “with her. It’s a philosophy that has long been the guiding principle behind the outstanding success record at all Centers Health Care facilities. “You can treat the injury, you can treat the recovery site, but if the patient has other issues you’ll never get them back to full independence. I make sure we think about balance, muscle tone, and flexibility. When we return a patient home, they’re fully ready for the challenges of the daily living”. Heading up a great team and imparting that same philosophy to them has helped Neha make the Hammonton Center one of the most successful rehabilitation centers in the region.
