Naples’ very own NCH Healthcare System has just received the Healthgrades’ “America’s 100 Best Hospitals” award. This extraordinary accomplishment places NCH in the top 2% of hospitals nationwide. This prestigious award is given for superior clinical care and patient outcomes. In fact, NCH’s patients receive better outcomes than 98% of nearly 4,500 other U.S. hospitals that were part of Healthgrades analysis.
Location, Location, Location
On average, patients treated in a Healthgrades’ top 100 hospitals had a 25.4% lower risk of dying than if they were treated in hospitals that did not receive this award. This means your proximity to NCH could dramatically improve your odds of recovering and getting better quickly.
It is also important to note, that response time, often referred to as the “Golden Hour” is a critical factor in effective emergency response when a life can be lost or saved within a matter of seconds. According to a recent article on the Health Emergency Initiative website, “A long response time can result in increased and permanent damage, a higher likelihood of fatalities, and greater distress to those involved. Therefore, response time is often used as a yardstick for the effectiveness of an emergency response. Coordinated efforts, speed and accuracy are needed to make emergency response effective.”
“Proximity to NCH’s hospitals is one of the key reasons that people choose one of our three Naples communities,” notes Tom Mann, Vice President of Moorings Park Communities. “In addition to having Southwest Florida’s best healthcare onsite at each of our communities, each of our locations has the added benefit of being just minutes away from NCH. And on top of that, each of Moorings Park Communities’ concierge physicians is affiliated with NCH. This means that in the event of an emergency, our concierge healthcare team follows you into the hospital to help coordinate your care.”
Naples’ Best Doctors
Mann continues, “NCH receiving Healthgrades’ ‘America’s 100 Best Hospitals’ award is an indicator of the type of top talent that Paul Hiltz, President & CEO of the NCH Healthcare System has been able to bring to our area. Then add Moorings Park Communities’ ability to attract the top concierge physicians in the area and you begin to see why so many boomers and seniors are drawn to our communities.”

Proactive Wellness Versus Reactive Healthcare
Moorings Park Communities has a long and notable history for its exceptional personalized healthcare program serving a clientele that is accustomed to the finer things in life. The company’s tagline, “Simply the Best” is a brand promise that over 1,000 staff members bring to life each and every day.
But what really sets this not-for-profit organization apart from other retirement communities in the area is its integrated holistic approach to wellness. This is accomplished through trained healthcare providers who practice proactive wellness rather than reactive healthcare.
“In your house and most communities, you stay home, you get sick, and you go to the doctor,” said Dr. John Little. “Our approach is to identify health problems early and head them off before they become real problems. We operate on a wellness model, not an illness model.” It’s an integrated approach to healthcare designed to enhance the mind, body and spirit of its residents.
Dr. Little and his wife Veora, who have lived in Naples for decades, are prototypical of the type of educated consumer that moves into a Moorings Park Community. They understand the importance of having a robust wellness and healthcare plan included in their contract, unlike what fee-for-service communities are offering.
Mann notes, “There are some very important nuances to our business model like having a concierge physician included in your monthly service package that astute individuals immediately grasp the value of.”
“I’ve had the benefit of being involved with Moorings Park for 15 years and during that time I’ve learned a lot about the aging process, health, wellness and housing,” said Dr. Little, a former Moorings Park board member. “My conclusion is the ideal way to age is in a Life Plan Community, like the communities Moorings Park has created.”
The UN-Retirement Community
“Our goal is to change how the world ages… to create the proverbial Fountain of Youth. Everything we do challenges the status quo on aging. We believe in doing things differently,” adds Dan Lavender, CEO and President of Moorings Park Communities.
Moorings Park’s unique Center for Healthy Living, which houses its fitness center, concierge physicians and medical clinic, outpatient rehab and a large theatre, is just a prelude to what lies within and is illustrative of the community’s commitment to wellness. As evidence of this, consider the recent award from the International Council on Active Aging. The Beacon Award, designed to recognize retirement communities offering the best in wellness to their residents, bestowed the honor of the #1 wellness-based community in North America on Moorings Park.
