Campus Health Services at Cornwall Manor
Cornwall Manor’s philosophy of health and wellness is based on the principle that each resident is entitled to enjoy and maintain the highest level of physical, mental, intellectual, social, emotional and spiritual health and wellness possible. We accomplish this through a variety of means, including comprehensive health services such as an onsite Visiting Physicians Office, access to home health care, onsite physical, occupational and speech therapy services, personal care and skilled nursing care.
Cornwall Manor’s Visiting Physicians Office (VPO) is an essential piece of the campus health services offered. Individuals who live at Cornwall Manor have access to the VPO, which handles a variety of medical services right on our campus, and includes a campus nurse, several physicians, a medical director and a secretary.
Cornwall Manor’s Campus Nurse, Gail Helm, LPN, coordinates and supervises health services for campus residents. She is responsible to respond to emergency calls from campus residents; oversees discharge orders of campus residents leaving the hospital or Cornwall Manor’s Health Center; and monitors residents’ progress and makes sure that they have medications needed and follow-up appointments have been scheduled.

She can also can see residents for vital sign checks, blood pressure screenings, immunizations, lab tests, wound dressings, injections and she assists the physicians who hold office hours at Cornwall Manor’s VPO including several physicians from Lebanon Internal Medicine Associates (LIMA) and Wellspan Health.
