Long-Term Care at McGovern Commons, Nazareth's Skilled Nursing Home in St Louis

We're with you all the way

Quality nursing services are provided by a dedicated staff. Individual care plans and attention to personal histories and preferences contribute to the residents feeling "at home."

New Ice Cream Parlor in McGovern Commons

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony - June 27, 2016

Staff, volunteers and family members work together to ensure the residents' sense of belonging. The long-standing tradition of family which has characterized Nazareth since 1872 opens the way for the residents of today to feel at home.

What shows feeling at home any better than an ice cream parlor? We have moved the previously hard to find ice cream parlor right inside our newly renovated main entrance to the McGovern Commons. We are ready to serve sweet treats and handmade items, created by our awesome volunteers.

Annual surveys of residents and their families show high levels of satisfaction with Nazareth and the care provided. Monthly Resident Council meetings allow residents the opportunity to interact with various department managers.

Nazareth's not-for-profit status implies quality. According to figures based on Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services data, not-for-profit nursing homes:

  • Provide more hours of care per patient day;
  • Invest more resources in resident care; and,
  • Average significantly fewer deficiencies than for-profit homes.
