Absolut Care of Aurora Park


East Aurora, NY – Absolut Care of Aurora Park is under new management and making notable strides to improve the quality and services it offers to those in East Aurora, Buffalo and the surrounding communities. 

In October, the federal government updated its Nursing Home Compare website with the latest star ratings highlighting survey results, staffing and quality measures for every facility in the nation.

Results can be found at www.medicare.gov.

Absolut Care of Aurora Park earned a new star in the survey category, bringing its overall rating to three stars.

This improvement is significant given the fact that it had a one-star rating when RCA Healthcare Management took over administration of the bankrupt facility in March of 2020.  At that time, RCA’s takeover was highly regarded to be the only viable option for saving Aurora Park and four sister facilities from potential closure. Currently, the facilities are being operated under an administrative services agreement while a formal change of ownership takes place. 

One of the keys to a successful acquisition is having dynamic, progressive leadership to facilitate the transition. As such, RCA appointed industry leader Stacy Bastian, RN, as administrator in March of 2020. Since that time, she and the professionals at Aurora Park have been committed to improving the quality of services at every level within the facility. A modification in the culture isn’t something that matures overnight; it’s the result of deliberate changes focused on investing in staff expertise, implementing technological advancements and adhering to best practices in order to improve the quality of services provided.    

The rise in star ratings is important because it places a quantifiable value on some of the most important aspects of care, including Aurora Park’s Department of Health surveys, staffing levels and quality measures. “Our team of exceptional caregivers understands what it takes, both clinically and operationally to improve our star ratings as we strive to achieve five stars,” Bastian stated. “We are committed to seeking new and innovative ways to deliver services, mentor one another and most-importantly provide the best care possible to our residents.”
