Fox Chase Rehabilitation & Nursing Center

Fox Chase Rehabilitation & Nursing Center is a Genesis-owned nursing home with 87 beds in Silver Spring.

Genesis is known for trying to spend enough money on its nursing homes to get by without raising anyone's ire. The company is like a college student with a job already lined up looking for that "C" so they can be left alone. Genesis wants to be left alone so it can make milions in profit. So the put the bare minimum into staffing. At Fox Chase, they get two stars for staffing from Medicare. Sometimes you can string something decent together scrapping by on spending the money it takes to staff a nursing home and sometimes you can't. Read this latest inspection report and decide for yourself if Fox Chase is getting by.

Genesis may face more nursing home lawsuits than any other nursing home chain in the country. But, somehow, we did not find any nursing home abuse or neglect lawsuits against Fox Chase.

Fox Chase Rehabilitation & Nursing Center is located at 2015 East West Highway, Silver Spring, MD 20910. The phone number is (301) 587-2400.
