    Bradenton, FL, Wednesday, October 21, 2020 –  Blake Medical Center has been recognized as one of the top three physical rehabilitation centers in Florida by Newsweek and Statista, Inc. Newsweek announced America's Best Physical Rehabilitation Centers 2020  to recognize the nation's top physical rehabilitation facilities based on the quality of care, quality of service, quality of follow-up care, and accommodation and amenities relative to in-state competition. 

    “We are thrilled to share this notable recognition, says Randy Currin, President and CEO of Blake Medical Center, “Our interdisciplinary team of caregivers work to provide patients in need with care plans and treatments that meet each individual’s specific needs. The hospital continues to invest in the best people, technology, and practices to help patients return to their highest level of recovery.”

    Blake Medical Center provides the only Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation Center in Manatee County and plays a vital role in the hospital’s continuum of care. The Center helps people triumph over challenges resulting from trauma or complications from a stroke, fractures, burns, and serious injury, as well as the onset of a disease that can affect activities of daily living, mobility, and other cognitive functions. The Inpatient Rehabilitation Center at Blake is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and the Joint Commission (JC). The Inpatient Rehabilitation Center provides a goal-oriented, family-focused approach to success. 

    According to Clement Hakim, Director of The Rehabilitation Center, “The excellent outcomes that our patients experience are the result of concerted efforts by a comprehensive team consisting of Board Certified Rehabilitation Physicians and passionate certified rehabilitation nurses that work hand in hand with a variety of outstanding therapists, with specialized certifications to address the specific needs of our patients. A dedicated social worker ensures that the rehabilitation process does not end when exiting our walls but that the patient has all the appropriate resources that they need upon discharge. The team works to meet the patients’ goals and eliminate barriers to return home.”

    The Best Physical Rehab Centers were chosen based on a rigorous methodology that includes data from a survey of thousands of medical experts as well as key performance indicators (KPIs) based on the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.

    As the financial impact of the coronavirus continues to be felt, the ongoing issue of hunger has reached a crisis point. With an approximately 120% increase in distribution – and a nearly 45% increase in new clients at its mobile pantries – since mid-March, All Faiths Food Bank has adapted to the crisis by changing its operations and adding resources and staff in order to expand and enhance services, and more efficiently find and feed those who are hungry. All Faiths hired a researcher to analyze the Meal Deficit Metric with the goal of identifying new areas with insufficient or no services. Armed with this information, All Faiths explored where it can engage new agency partners, hold additional mobile pantries, and supplement its staff. “As the pandemic continues to hit our community hard, we’re working harder and smarter to find people who may never have had to ask for help before,” said Sandra Frank, CEO of All Faiths. “Families a re experiencing hardships regardless of their financial background and those hardships make it difficult to put food on the table. We want anyone who is struggling to feed their families to know that we are here for them with food and support.”
