Our team, experience and track record

Working with most of the major hospitals in the Cincinnati area, we’re proud of our low readmission rate  for patients who come to us for short-term rehab back to hospitals. They are less than half the average readmission rates in the area and is an indicator of the high standards and expert team we have here for medical care, wellness programs and physical therapy.

Led by our Clinical Care Manager with more than 20 years’ experience, our clinical team has expertise in many critical areas of rehabilitation after leaving the hospital focusing on acute illness, injury and disease progression management.

We use a wide variety of progressive care protocols to help with wound healing after your surgery or hospital stay. With our impressive wound healing rate of 90 percent, other care centers often send us their most difficult cases.

We also excel in:
  • Post-surgical recovery
  • Stroke recovery
  • Knee replacement rehabilitation and recovery
  • Hip replacement rehabilitation and recovery
  • Heart attack rehabilitation and recovery
  • Pneumonia rehabilitation and recovery
  • Joint replacement therapy
  • Pain management
  • Edema/circulation management
Other short-term recovery protocols include:
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Short wave diathermy
  • Acupuncture
  • Ultrasound  

The right approach in a healing environment

With one of the highest staff-to-resident ratios in the area, our team of physical, occupational, and speech therapists work with our nurses, social services and activities professionals to provide a multi-level, interactive approach to short-term recovery.

Our therapy suite is just steps away from our residential rooms, and our therapists make full use of our Fitness Zone and aquatics center. We have proven time after time that a warm household environment combined with a caring, compassionate team of professionals results in better patient outcomes. This makes the entire transitional experience from hospital to home much more effective and satisfying for our residents, their families and our staff as we restore patients to health in as short a time as is safely possible.

Katie_Laur_2012.png“After a couple weeks at the Marjorie P. Lee, I was relearning walking, sitting, rising, and learning how to eat three times a day (protein, two vegetables, etc. for dinner), as well as how to be sociable, cheerful, and obedient (i.e. don’t walk in the hallways unaccompanied) …. I left the place stronger than when I entered, and the physical therapy continues even though I am at home.”

—WNKU personality and bluegrass artist Katie Laur in Cincinnati Magazine


A standard of excellence since 1951

Marjorie P. Lee has set the standard for elder care in our community since the first day we opened. Our Person-Centered Care approach provides permanent, long-term and short-term residents alike, the freedom, choice and purpose they deserve. We strive to ensure residents live life on their own terms while we maintain the highest standards of quality and services. The results are remarkable for our residents, their families, and our staff.

Along with our impressively low readmission rates, we receive consistently high Medicare ratings and satisfaction scores from staff, residents and families year after year.

We also have received certification from the prestigious Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and the Continuing Care Accreditation Commission (CCAC). CARF-CCAC is an independent nonprofit accreditor of human services that sets standards of excellence in the industry. Accreditation demonstrates a provider's commitment to continuously improve service quality and to focus on the satisfaction of the persons served. This certification is not easy to get, and only a small percentage of continuing care retirement communities achieve it.

Our community also is consistently selected as a Top Workplace by our employees and the best retirement community on the East Side of Cincinnati by our residents.
