Two in a row deficiency-free surveys for Newton Village

Newton Village reinforced its reputation as a top-notch health care facility in late March when it received its second consecutive deficiency-free survey from the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals.

DIA surveyors conducted a routine, unannounced on-site survey (inspection) visit at Newton Village’s assisted living, memory care and health center areas.

Surveys assess the quality of care and services a facility provides, and in general, only about 5 percent of health care facilities in Iowa receive deficiency-free surveys.

Newton Village Executive Director Angela Adam said a team effort led to the positive result.

“This extraordinary accomplishment is due to the exceptional residents/tenants we serve along with team members and volunteers living out our service standards of compassion, integrity, excellence, innovation, stewardship, unity, respect and collaboration every day in every way,” Adam told the Newton Daily News.

She added that recognitions the community receives are made possible by striving to fulfill the organization’s mission of lovingly serving others.

“Newton Village residents/tenants, loved ones, volunteers and team members are and will continue to strive for excellence,” Adam said. “We view these recognitions as evidence that we are and will continue on the right track to foster fullness of life for older adults in the spirit of Christ’s love together.”

Congratulations to everyone at Newton Village for this wonderful achievement!
