VANCOUVER, Wash., Aug. 1, 2011 — /PRNewswire/ — a trio of senior living communities in the Prestige Care family were recently named to the U.S. News & World Report‘s list of “Best Nursing Homes” in 2011 for their dedication to providing the highest standard in senior and rehabilitation care.
Each honoree – Chehalem Health and Rehabilitation Center, Porthaven Health Care Center and Creswell Health and Rehabilitation Center – qualified for inclusion on the list earlier this year by earning perfect scores on the Five-Star Quality Rating System, carried out by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
A community’s rating, ranging from one to five stars, was determined by scores that consider safety, past health inspection results, caregiver and staffing data, as well as other quality measures.
“We are so proud to be recognized for our quality measures,” said Prestige Care CEO Harold Delamarter. ”We look forward to continuing to deliver on our promise to provide unmatched quality care from the heart at these five-star centers and across the Prestige family of care communities.”
Prestige’s Cascade Terrace Nursing Center in Portland also earned perfect marks on the Five-Star Quality Rating System.
