We are thrilled to announce the Nursing Home Administrator (NHA), Ellen Haupt, has rejoined the team.
Haupt was the Director of Nursing at United Zion several years ago. In the interim, she has served as an NHA at various nursing homes including Luther Acres, Frey Village and St Anne’s. Most recently, Haupt was the Director of Quality Assurance/Education at St. Martha’s Center in Downingtown, where she developed policies and educated staff on compliance and regulations. Haupt has created and implemented Quality Assurance Performance Improvement programs that have led to improvements in CMS Five Star Ratings.
Haupt earned her Nursing Diploma from Saint Joseph Hospital School of Nursing and her Bachelor’s in Nursing from Millersville University. She received her NHA qualifications from York College. She also earned an Aging Service Professional certification from the University of Texas.
“I am very excited to return to United Zion,” states Haupt, “United Zion has a special place in my heart as it feels like one big family-friendly atmosphere, everyone caring for each other, the longevity of staff. There are employees from when I worked here 13 years ago. I am looking forward to continuing the culture and quality that United Zion is known for while enhancing United Zion services with my passion for and experience in quality assurance.”
Haupt will be leading the skilled nursing team, medical staff, and other professionals as they move into the recently renovated and expanded healthcare center for long-term care and short-term rehabilitation. The updated 59 private room healthcare center is now grouped into smaller skilled care neighborhoods of 15-20 residents each. Each neighborhood will have its own kitchen, dining room and living area. This change to the neighborhood model supports United Zion’s person-centered approach to care. For those interested in learning more about the healthcare center or other areas within the community, United Zion will be holding an open house on October 20, 2018.
