Christie Fochtman – Is the Rehab Director working at Meadow View Nursing Center. Christie is a Certified Occupational Therapist and has worked at Meadow View for the last eight years. Working closely with the clinical staff and managing the therapy caseload, while still having the opportunity to provide Occupational Treatment to the residents is the reason Christie enjoys her job at Meadow View. “I genuinely love helping people, being able to help someone re-gain function and return home is very rewarding for me” Christie states. “My favorite rehab activity is working with stroke victims and seeing the improvement that comes from hard work and diligence put forth from each individual.”
Christie grew up in Berlin, and is now raising her family in Berlin alongside her husband Kyle. The Fochtman family enjoys spending time outside boating, swimming, riding SUVs, and sled-riding.
If you are in need of some short-term rehab after an illness or injury, Christie invites you to tour Meadow View and take in the scenic beauty of the landscape along with the cleanliness of the building, both of which will help in your decision of choosing the right rehab center.

Specialty – CVA; I find CVAs fascinating because there are no two alike: I love the challenge of figuring out what works for each patient, in regard to obtaining maximum return in their extremities and overall function. Watching individuals progress throughout my treatment is rewarding, because I know they see the improvements too.
Rhonda Hinton- grew up in Somerset County and is pleased to be back in the area working as Meadow View’s Speech Language Pathologist.
Rhonda states, “Meadow View is a beautiful facility, in which I’ve seen a group of people that truly care about providing care and comfort to the individuals that reside here, both short-term stays and individuals who call Meadow View their home now.”
Rhonda’s favorite part of her job is brightening someone’s day, and improving the quality of someone’s life through little everyday interactions. Rhonda works directly with residents for dysphagia treatment and helping to advance their diets. Rhonda and her family enjoy spending time outdoors and visiting state parks. Let’s all cheer Rhonda on as she participates in her first ½ marathon in Pittsburgh this May.

Specialty – Swallowing disorders and dysphagia treatment: I enjoy educating residents and family members on various types of exercises that can improve a person’s awareness when eating/drinking. Swallowing disorders may be categorized together, but like strokes, each one is different. Being able to help someone go from puree to regular food is a wonderful feeling for me!
Denise Miller, PTA – 20 years of experience – working in LTC for 8 years
Specialty – severe de-conditioning: I love being a part of the day to day progress from complete dependence to returning home with full independence. The fulfillment that I feel is overwhelming when I watch them walk out the door to go home with their loved ones.
