River Garden to receive Governor’s Gold Seal Award


River Garden Hebrew Home for the Aged will be recognized with an 8th Florida Governor’s Gold Seal Award for Excellence in Long-Term Care. Of the more than 680 nursing homes in Florida, the nonprofit River Garden Hebrew Home has continuously held this recognition since it was created in 2002 by the Florida Legislature.

The Gold Seal Award recognizes Florida nursing homes that “demonstrate excellence in long-term care over a sustained period, promotes the stability of the field and facilitates the physical, social, and emotional well-being of nursing home facility residents.”

Located on a 40-acre campus in Mandarin, River Garden serves clients from diverse religious and ethnic backgrounds. In addition to the Gold Seal Award, the community is a five-star rated community by Florida’s Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) and CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services).
