They're celebrating fifty stars … an extraordinary achievement that doesn't happen just by chance. Radford Green at Sedgebrook senior living community first opened its doors ten years ago. Since that time, the healthcare and rehabilitation center in Lincolnshire has consistently earned the prestigious five-star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Only 10% of the nursing homes in Illinois earn the five-star rating, and the fact that Radford Green's has been constant in this accomplishment throughout its history is even more impressive.

Radford Green offers assisted living, memory care, respite, rehabilitation, and skilled nursing care. Keegan Sawyer, the administrator for Radford Green, said that there is a strong, organization-wide commitment to providing the best possible service and care to all of the patients and residents. To reflect that, Sawyer said, Radford Green has adopted practices that are unique in the industry.


Among the most important assets that Radford Green boasts, is the on-campus presence of a medical center with two full-time board-certified physicians dedicated solely to Radford Green and Sedgebrook. Dr. Elliott Kroger and Dr. Kimberly Jenson have both been at the community since Radford Green opened. "They have high expectations tied into an excellent clinical model that they've developed," said Sawyer. "Usually, rehabilitation ad healthcare centers have visiting physicians with limited time on-site. Dr. Kroger and Dr. Jensen are exclusively dedicated to our community. That makes a tremendous difference in their availability, which is 24/7, their relationships with the patients, and their positive outcomes. No one else that we're aware of in the industry has a model like this, and it's an important reason we're able to maintain such high-quality care." Radford Green also has a full-time nurse practitioner rounding out an impressive medical team.

Other highly specialized professionals include a full-time wound-care certified nurse, and a dedicated restorative therapist.

In addition to the on-site physicians, Radford Green has specialists who visit regularly. This includes physiatrists who specialize in rehab services, pain management, and regaining functionality.

On July 25th, Radford Green will be commemorating its 10th anniversary, while celebrating its prestigious achievements. "We really have a lot to be proud of," said Sawyer. The open house will be held from 4-8 p.m. at Radford Green. There will be refreshments, raffles, and live entertainment. For additional information contact cclark@sedgebrook.net.
