ArchCare Nursing Home Announces Five Star Quality Rating Award From CMS
ArchCare at Ferncliff Nursing Home today announced that it has been awarded a five-star rating for quality, the highest level possible, by the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
The CMS star rating system assesses the medical care, physical environment and service quality of 15,000 Medicare- or Medicaid-certified nursing homes based on in-person government inspections, clinical data and other factors. ArchCare at Ferncliff earned an overall five-star (much above average) rating, as well as five stars for quality measures, which shows how well a nursing home cares for the physical and other needs of its residents.
With the addition of Ferncliff, all five skilled nursing facilities operated by ArchCare, the healthcare system of the Archdiocese of New York, have now earned the coveted top rating.
