What Makes Us Different?

Family owned and operated facility in St. Johns County for 26 years. Our owner and his daughter are intimately involved with facility operations.

 


 

We are the only facility in the area to have perfect annual surveys in 2010 and 2011.   

 


 

Our staff accompany residents to all outside medical appointments.

 


 

Members of the Ponce therapy team are employees, not contract service providers, which allows us to have the flexibility to react to resident needs and provide therapy services seven days a week.

 


We track resident therapy outcomes by measuring the resident's pre-hospitalization capabilities, status upon admission to The Ponce and then again upon discharge just before going home. This allows us to determine resident progress in objective terms and constantly assess Quality Assurance.

  We achieve an 85%+ critical function recovery rate upon discharge as compared to the resident's pre-hospital admission condition. As a result, The Ponce has documented an above 90% return-to-home rate for our residents every month since 2007. These are people that went to the hospital from home and then came to The Ponce to receive therapy (PT, OT and/or ST)

 


 

Our therapy is working! 

Nursing employees have permanent assignments for continuity of care and total accountability.

 


 

Dedicated staffing.

 

 


 

The Ponce has more private rooms than any facility in St. Augustine. We have 24 private rooms available for admission.

 


 

In 2006, The Ponce completed a $1.4 million renovation and in 2011, we are investing another $1 million in the building and grounds.

 


 

We have Registered Nurses on staff every shift to provide the highest level of clinical competency available.
