Morris Nursing Home one of Ohio’s best

The Morris Nursing Home in Bethel has been identified as one of the top 35 nursing homes in the state by the Ohio Department of Aging.

In a 2006 survey completed by family members and loved ones, the Morris Nursing Home received an outstanding overall score of 94.2 percent, making it the only nursing home in Clermont County to rank in the survey.

“We are one of the best kept secrets in the county,” said operations manager and Tate Township resident Rick Houser. “We are a smaller nursing home but we offer everything that the largest nursing home in the county offers.”

The Morris Nursing Home, which has been a nursing home for 55 years, employs 23 people and offers a nurse’s aide training program. It is an 18 bed, dual-license facility that offers everything from many wellness therapies and hospice care to rehabilitation.

Nicole McCaughey, Morris Nursing Home administrator since January 2006, said that she is not at all surprised that the facility has been awarded this distinction because of the specialized, one-on-one individual care that the residents receive.
