A Message from the President & CEO

My heart goes out to all who have been affected by this worldwide pandemic. During times of crisis, we often come together in ways we've never come together before. We set aside insignificant things and shift our focus to what really matters most in life...the people we love and care about. As I reflect on the past months since things began to unfold with the coronavirus (COVID-19), I am humbled by and grateful for the work of our local emergency responders, hospital professionals, and other workers who are making it possible for people to get health care services, food, supplies and medications. These "Community Heroes" lend courage, strength and sacrifice through their service to others.

Being in the retirement living business, we at Morningstar Living have a monumental responsibility to take care of and protect the people we serve..."in health and in sickness." Caring for and protecting the residents and the clients we serve is what we do. We are responsible for hundreds of residents living at our two campuses in Nazareth, and the clients we provide in-home support and care to, who are living in their homes throughout the Lehigh Valley. Our residents and our clients rely on us 24/7/365. For this reason, we've taken some very extraordinary measures to limit the risk of infection and prevent the spread of the virus in our communities:

As I think about these extraordinary changes that we've made in a short period of time, I am in awe of my team members, who come to work faithfully and work tirelessly around the clock to make a difference in the lives of the people we serve. Our team of Nurses, CNAs, Caregivers, Social Services, Wellness, Physical Therapy, Neighborhood and Community Life, Culinary Services, Maintenance and Security, Groundskeeping, Housekeeping, Transportation, IT and Administration...these are the Morningstar Living Heroes.

Yes, the world has certainly changed as a result of COVID-19, and so have we at Morningstar Living. Who knows how long we'll be dealing with this pandemic and its' aftermath? And while there may be more changes and uncertainty in the months that lie ahead, there is one thing of which I am absolutely certain...the mission and core purpose of Morningstar Living has never been more important.

"Making a difference...by enriching life's journey for all we serve."

Five Star Quality at Moravian Hall Square

Moravian Hall Square’s Health & Wellness Center has been named to the U.S. News & World Report Best Nursing Homes 2018-2019, receiving a five-star rating. 

This award is based on data from Nursing Home Compare, a program run by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the federal agency that sets and enforces standards for nursing homes.  The annual survey assigns skilled-nursing centers one to five stars and is based on assessment of Health Inspections & Complaints, Staffing, and Medical Care Quality Measures.  More than 15,000 nursing homes were evaluated nationwide.  This year, just over 2,000 nursing homes earned the designation of a U.S. News Best Nursing Home.

“It is such an honor that Moravian Hall Square Health & Wellness Center is once again recognized as a ‘Best Nursing Home’ by U.S. News & World Report,” said Susan C. Drabic, President and CEO of Morningstar Senior Living, Inc., which owns and operates Moravian Hall Square.  “I am extremely proud of our staff.  Their passion and dedication to delivering exceptional quality care to our residents is what makes this recognition possible.”
