"In loving memory of Sally Schnabel, RN, LNHA, former operator of Crown Nursing and Rehabilitation Center." Sally Schnabel, RN, LNHA worked in skilled nursing facilities for almost fifty years as a nurse, nursing director and a licensed nursing home administrator. She was known for her uncompromising standards and expects every caregiver working at Crown Nursing Rehabilitation to provide the highest standards of patient care. Ms. Schnabel expected each care giver to provide the same resident centered care as if“you would for your mother or father.”
|Marilyn is here for short stay rehabilitation and we are satisfied with the care she is given. Everything is good, we like the facility and we would recommend it to others.
