Franciscan Communities received excellent marks in the latest Five-Star Quality Rating System from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
Each year, CMS updates its Nursing Home Compare Website that ranks the best nursing homes and helps prospective residents and their families determine which community is the best fit for them. The ratings take several factors into consideration, including health inspections, staffing and quality measures.
Nursing homes with four-and-five-star ratings are considered high-performing and above average compared to other communities in their state.
“We are excited to see our communities achieve four-and-five star quality ratings in the areas that significantly impact the care our residents receive,” said Franciscan Ministries Vice President of Clinical Services David Pagano. “These ratings show us that while achieving these high standards, we are continually striving to find ways we can improve the quality of care we provide.”
St. Joseph Village of Chicago earned a 5-star rating for its health inspection, quality measures, RN staffing and overall quality.
Addolorata Villa in Wheeling, Ill. received a 4-star health inspection rating and 5-star ratings for overall quality and staffing.
Franciscan Village in Lemont, Ill. secured a 5-star rating for RN staffing and a 4-star rating for overall staffing levels.
The Village at Victory Lakes in Lindenhurst, Ill. received a 5-star staffing rating and 4-star ratings for the community’s health inspection and quality measures.
