January 27, 2021

MP Chateau Earns Gov Gold Seal #4

For the fourth consecutive time, the Chateau at Moorings Park, a Medicare-certified, skilled nursing center providing short-term therapy, long-term care and memory care services, has been named a recipient of the Governor’s Gold Seal Award. 

Established in 2002, the Gold Seal Award program recognizes Florida nursing homes that have exceptionally high standards.

“This well-deserved award represents Moorings Park’s dedication to excellence in long-term care and recognizes the Chateau as one that exhibits excellence in care management and quality of life for its residents,” commented Bobby Rosenthal, Chair of The Governor’ Panel on Excellence in Long-Term Care.

“Having the Chateau receive the Governor’s Gold Seal Award is testament to Moorings Park’s commitment to providing Simply the Best® quality healthcare and services available in the region,” stated Dan Lavender, CEO and President of Moorings Park Communities. “It’s also an honor to receive the Governor’s Gold Seal Award not once, but four consecutive times.”

To qualify for the award, applicants must participate in a consumer satisfaction process involving residents, family members and guardians, as well as demonstrate the involvement of families and members of the community in the facility, and have a stable workforce. They also must have an outstanding record with the State Long Term Care Ombudsman Council within 30 months preceding their application. 

Redefining Retirement at Moorings Park

With a long and notable history for its exceptional personalized healthcare programs, as evidenced by the Governor’s Gold Seal Award, Moorings Park takes pride in serving a clientele that is accustomed to the finer things in life. The tagline, “Simply the Best®”, is more than a mission – it’s a brand promise that over 1,000 staff members bring to life each and every day.

“Moorings Park helps its residents age successfully,” states Tom Mann, Vice President of Moorings Park Communities. “I think to most people Moorings Park is synonymous with luxury living. And it’s true, our residences, restaurants and amenities are amazing. But what truly makes Moorings Park special is our unique, preventative approach to healthcare.” 

Healthcare Beyond Compare

The community’s Center for Healthy Living, which houses its fitness center, concierge physicians and medical clinic and outpatient rehab, is a reminder of how Moorings Park continually strives to create an integrated lifestyle with a focus on wellness and nutrition for a better-balanced for its residents. 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 last year.

“We’re really focused on delivering a unique lifestyle unlike any other in the country. One that balances resort-style living with innovative approaches to wellness,” said Mann.

Lavender agrees. “Our goal is to change how the world ages – to create the proverbial Fountain of Youth,” he said. “We believe in doing things differently. It’s all for the benefit of our active, social and eager-to-learn residents.”
