A proven standard of excellence means you are in good hands
The national standards for quality that earned Peconic Landing its third distinctive five-year accreditation term from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) continue to serve as the foundation for our success. CARF is the nation’s first and only accreditation system for CCRCs. Having this accreditation means that Peconic Landing conforms to proven business practices, fiscal integrity, employee training, information management and continuous quality improvement. Peconic Landing has the distinction of being the only CARF-accredited CCRC on Long Island.
The Health Center at Peconic Landing has also earned national recognition from CARF as a Person-Centered Long-Term Care Community. According to CARF, communities that qualify as person-centered must foster a holistic culture that focuses on:
- Autonomy, dignity, and individual choice of the persons served.
- Relationships among persons served, families/support systems, and personnel.
- Persons served making decisions about the rhythm of their day, the services provided to them, and the issues that are important to them.
- Cultural competence, flexibility, and safety and security of the community.
- Continuous learning and growth, teamwork, empowerment, responsiveness, and spontaneity.
Proven fiscal responsibility
As New York State’s only equity-based model, Peconic Landing is the most heavily regulated CCRC statewide. This oversight helps contribute to our strong fiscal standing and premier quality of care. As a Life Plan Community providing long-term care, Peconic Landing is subject to all laws and regulations set forth by the New York State Department of Health in association with the New York State Continuing Care Retirement Community Council. The cooperative ownership component of the community is governed through the New York State Attorney General’s Office while the insurance component of the Lifecare contract is overseen by the New York State Department of Financial Services, which approves all monthly service fees and purchase prices.
Peconic Landing is proud to be one of five CCRCs in New York State to have earned a distinction by the Fitch Rating Agency, a nationally recognized statistical rating organization. Holding a Fitch rating helps the organization with financial investments geared towards strategic growth for the future. A proven asset, the rating helped Peconic Landing to receive a favorable interest rate on bonds issued for the community’s most recent expansion in 2016. Based on our community’s continued high level of occupancy and strong financial performance, Peconic Landing maintains a stable BBB- investment grade rating. In 2021, Fitch reaffirmed Peconic Landing’s rating, noting the organization’s fiscal stability, strong revenue defensibility and favorable location.
