We are committed to meeting the needs of our patients, families and communities. Our dedicated and highly trained physicians, nurses, and therapists strive to deliver the highest quality care while acting as an extended family, all united in a circle of care. It’s this community of compassion and attention to individual needs that we believe sets us apart as a model of quality care.
As of January 2014 98% of our facilities have a 4 or 5-Star rating for Quality Measures and 27 of our facilities have a 4 or 5-Star Overall Quality rating through the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), a 60% increase over the prior year! 5-Star Quality ratings are measured based on indicators including compliance with regulations, clinical outcomes, and staffing levels.
Our commitment to quality is demonstrated through the following programs:
- 5-Star Quality Measures
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) created the 5-Star Quality Rating System to help consumers, their families, and caregivers compare nursing homes more easily and to help identify areas about which you may want to ask questions.

- Interdisciplinary (IDT) Walking Rounds
This team approach to the management of complex diseases and rehabilitation provides our residents with comprehensive, efficient care.
- Validation in Process (VIP)
The VIP program is designed to ensure that you are ready to return to your home safely and successfully. It is a personalized, team approach to implement a less restrictive environment to replicate the setting you will return to at home.
Our Use of Technology Sets Us Apart
As responsible, accountable stewards of resources, we continually look for ways to enhance successful care transitions, streamline communication, increase cost-effectiveness, and improve quality outcomes.
The implementation of electronic Medication/Treatment Administration records and voice activated Activities of Daily Living documentation has improved staff efficiency, allowing us to devote our time to providing quality patient-centered care.
Our systems use advanced and innovative technology to help integrate facilities with physician, pharmacy lab, radiology and other health care partners. This helps promote accuracy and provides more efficient access to patient health information to enhance continuity of care.
