The SNFs designated as Preferred or Aligned have signed a cooperative agreement with LVHN.

SNFs were evaluated based on:


  • Performance in key quality metrics and patient outcomes
  • CMS quality ratings and
  • Readmission rates

Care coordination

  • Patient volume
  • location of service and
  • On-site LVHN/LVPG provider presence

Cost factors

  • Length of stay
  • Resource Utilization Group (RUG) and
  • Cost per episode

Patients will receive information about these partnerships from hospital Case Managers. Patients may choose any SNF, even if not Preferred or Aligned with LVHN. LVPG Geriatrics, through SNF Learning Collaboratives, will continue to work with all facilities.

However, pilots for any new pathways and protocols will be piloted with Preferred facilities and then implemented with all tiered facilities. Evaluations of facilities will occur annually and their relationships with LVHN may change as a result.
