STAFFORD SPRINGS, CT – Evergreen Health Care Center, which offers long-term and short-term rehabilitation as well as care for those with Alzheimer’s and related forms of dementia, received a 5-star rating from the Centers of Medicare/Medicaid.
There are 229 nursing home and rehabilitation facilities in Connecticut. Fewer than 10% have a 5-star rating. This rating is determined by the outcomes of health inspections, nursing staff care, and nine different physical and clinical quality measures. To receive a 5-star rating from the Centers of Medicare/Medicaid, a nursing home and recovery center must exceed the quality requirements for health inspections, provide comprehensive care to patients individually, and surpass each of the nine quality measures.
"Receiving this 5-star rating is monumental," said Stuart E. Rosenberg, President/CEO, JMMC. "It confirms our continuing success in our mission to provide individualized, comprehensive care to all our patients."
The Centers for Medicare/Medicaid launched their rating system to provide residents and their families with an easy way to understand nursing home quality and simplify decisions around finding a high-quality, trustworthy nursing facility.
Evergreen Health Care Center is part of the Johnson Memorial Medical Center (JMMC), and partner of Saint Francis Care health system. JMMC is a non-profit parent company of Johnson Memorial Hospital, Evergreen Health Care Center, and Home & Community Health Services. JMMC provides a continuum of health care services to those living and working in north central Connecticut and western Massachusetts. For more information, visit www.jmmc.com.
