Pennsylvania Medical Directors Overwhelmingly Stand with Golden Living



Published November 16, 2015

In a bold stand, 25 Golden Living Medical Directors in Pennsylvania have signed a declaration to affirm their support of the company and their caregiving team. The declaration letter also was published in Harrisburg over the weekend to show these physicians’ support.  
“As the chief medical officer, I applaud these medical directors in their decision to stand fast with Golden Living,” said Golden Living Chief Medical Officer Dr. Michael Yao. “Their commitment to serving our patients and their families reflects our company’s mission to provide the best standard of care possible.”
The letter signed by the Golden LivingCenter Medical Directors was as follows:  
“As Medical Directors of long-term care facilities we’ve dedicated our lives to the health and well being of this fragile population. Caring for our nation’s aging population is a calling for us. We bring our clinical knowledge, experience, empathy and teamwork to the LivingCenters and communities we serve. 
Many of our residents and their families aren’t aware that long-term-care facilities are one of the most highly regulated healthcare groups in the country.  Golden Living’s mission is to provide the highest quality of care while meeting the stringent standards and oversight of the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.  
We invite the members of our local communities to call or visit their LivingCenter and see the outstanding care we provide to our patients and residents.”
