The RP Home Today
The Reformed Presbyterian Home is a 100-bed facility offering four levels of care: independent living, personal care, intermediate and skilled nursing. The RP Home is fully accredited by the appropriate regulatory agencies and meets the highest standards of care. The Director of Nursing is a registered nurse and leader of the Pennsylvania Association of Directors of Nursing Administration. We maintain membership in the following organizations that are helpful in keeping abreast of developments in nursing, health care management, and community relations: Leading Age, Leading Age PA, Perry Hilltop Citizens’ Council, Fineview Citizens’ Council, Northside State Health Improvement Partnership, the Southwestern Pennsylvania Partnership for Aging, the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America and the Health Care Council of Western Pennsylvania.
The RP Home is one of the strongest economic engines within Perry Hilltop and surrounding neighborhoods. We have been a stable employer in the community for many years; currently, 55% of our 125 employees live within walking distance. In addition, the Chief Financial Officer recently completed 15 years of service to the Perry Hilltop Citizens’ Council. Our dedication to the neighborhood has not been out of lack of options; in 1983, the RP Home was offered 22 acres of free land in Gibsonia to move our organization. We chose to remain and continue our ministry in Perry Hilltop. In 2007, our investment in the community was further manifested when we constructed mixed income housing independent living apartments for seniors. The Upper Rooms Inc. is HUD Section 202 income subsidized housing for seniors, and the Vista apartments are a part of our Continuing Care Retirement Community.
In keeping with its charitable mission, the RP Home has set its charges at cost. The RP Home has historically accepted many persons whose funds are not sufficient to meet these charges. This type of benevolent care frequently goes beyond the ordinary services offered by the RP Home and may include such items as pharmacy bills and health insurance premiums. Charitable care is funded by gifts, grants, bequests, and endowment income.
The RP Home is committed to caring for residents without regard to sex, race, color, religious creed, ancestry, disabilities, age, or national origin. We recognize our obligation to our denomination and give preference to those seeking admission from the Reformed Presbyterian Church.
