The Future of Florissant Valley Health & Rehab

Recently adding one of the area’s leading and experienced Nursing Home Administrators, Jennifer Burgess, to their team, Florissant Valley Health & Rehab is shining brighter than ever. A new day has begun! With plans in place and a confident team, Jennifer is taking this St. Louis rehab center down an unexplored path. “I feel fortunate for the opportunity to bring the future of long-term care to Florissant Valley,” she said with a proud smile.

A New Day, A New Way

Jennifer Burgess brings more than just a ray of light to this center, she brings more than 20 years of long-term-care experience. Jennifer began her career in mental health, then after completing an internship in long-term-care, she found her passion. Building relationships with her residents and team is the most rewarding part of her career.

Additionally, Jennifer takes great pride in her ability to provide residents and their families with ample information, resources, and support. She has a Master’s Degree in social work and is well versed in regulatory compliance and process implementation. “Learning happens when you strive for more information and best practices.” Jennifer said.

Taking Steps Forward

Providing expansive rehab therapies and recovery programs, FloValley Health is an excellent rehab-to-home choice. Rehabilitation patients work directly with highly-experienced therapists who specialize in prosthetics and amputee rehabilitation. Jennifer went on to share many of the success stories tied to the center’s rehab program. “Two of our double amputees have just begun walking! It’s so wonderful to see,” she said, smiling excitedly. Aside from rehabilitation, the facility has one of the most experienced would care treatment and management programs for even the most complex wounds.

You’ll find Florissant Valley Health in the heart of historic Florissant, Mo. in North St. Louis County. The center is known as a welcoming and friendly place for staff and residents to thrive, right here in their own neighborhood. Florissant offers many opportunities for businesses of all sizes to get involved with their community and make connections with local resources. Jennifer’s first step is joining the North County Chamber of Commerce. “Community wide events and holiday parties are also something we plan to implement,” Jennifer said. Other healthcare centers with MGM also embrace this approach, hosting many community events and activities for engagement throughout the year.

For Florissant Valley Rehab with MGM Healthcare, this is just the beginning. “We’re taking steps to achieve excellent care outcomes” Jennifer said, explaining her goals for their care and rehab programs. It truly is a new day at FloValley and what a beautiful day it is.
