Spring Creek Health Care 5 Star Award

CMS Updates Nursing Home Five-Star Quality Ratings
New quality measures are now included in the overall calculation for Nursing Home star ratings


Spring Creek Health Care Nursing and Rehabilitation Center was recently given at Five-Star Rating for Quality for Nursing Homes.  
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) updated the Five-Star Quality Ratings to incorporate new measures, giving families more information at their fingertips to help them make important decisions about care. These new measures look at successful discharges, emergency visits, and re-hospitalizations, and complement other nursing home measures.

“When residents and their families are faced with important decisions about care, they need an easy, transparent way to figure out which facility is the best fit for them or their loved ones,” said Sandy Dick, VP of Spring Creek . “With a 5 star rating in Quality, this just emphasizes the importance placed on quality of Spring Creek and how focused we are in delivering excellent care to our residents, patients, and their families.”

CMS is committed to making sure residents, their family members, and caregivers have the most meaningful information possible when they consider facilities. Nursing Home Compare is the agency’s public information website that provides information on how well Medicare and Medicaid certified nursing homes provide care to their residents and rehabilitation services for the short term patients who return home.

Nursing Home Compare allows you to find and compare nursing homes certified by Medicare and Medicaid. Nursing Home Compare also allows the public to see how our quality of resident care compares to more than 15,000 nursing homes around the country.
