CMS developed the system to review nursing homes based on information submitted about residents and their care, and to help consumers, their families and caregivers compare nursing homes more easily. Nursing homes with five stars are considered to have above average care and service. The retirement community also received the Observer News and Enterprise's Reader's Choice "Best of Catawba County" award in both the categories of Retirement Community and Nursing Homes.
