Enhanced Assisted Living License Approved for the Hawthorne


Recent approval from the New York State Department of Health has granted the Hawthorne at St. John’s Meadows certification as both an Assisted Living Residence (ALR) and Enhanced Assisted Living Residence (EALR). These new licensures will allow the Hawthorne at St. John’s Meadows to provide residents with a significantly greater level of care, thus eliminating the gap between traditional assisted living and skilled nursing services. These new designations will also make it easier for Hawthorne residents to apply monthly benefits from long-term care insurance policies towards their care.

“The approval to provide Assisted Living and Enhanced Assisted Living services is a very important milestone for St. John’s,” said St. John’s President and CEO Charlie Runyon. “Our ability to help people age in place more comfortably while allowing them to utilize their resources more efficiently will bring meaningful benefits to our residents for years to come. Providing this increased level of care promises to significantly strengthen the St. John’s spectrum of care.”
