Evanston, IL (PRWEB) March 13, 2013
U.S. News and World Report’s Best Nursing Homes 2013 awarded five-star overall ratings to The Moorings Health Center in Arlington Heights, IL, and Westminster Place (McGaw Care Center) in Evanston, IL. Both facilities are part of Presbyterian Homes’ continuing care retirement communities in the Chicago area. The health centers offer short and long-term nursing care, rehabilitation services and memory care.
The ratings were developed using combined information from state health inspection reports, nurse staffing information and selected quality measures of clinical care reported at the Nursing Home Compare website run by the Federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
“We’re very pleased to achieve a top rating in this report,” says Linda Dotson, health care administrator at Westminster Place (McGaw Care Center). “I believe it is our team that makes the difference. We have an interdisciplinary team that is very experienced and continually engaged in delivering comprehensive, person-centered care to our residents.”
John Denkert, health care administrator at The Moorings Health Center, says, "We’re proud to be given a five-star rating for the care we provide in our health center. We have ongoing quality initiatives that focus on the well-being of our residents. Our experienced nursing, therapy, and activities teams work very collaboratively to inspire our residents to achieve their potential and embrace life here at The Moorings.”
Detailed information regarding rated areas is found at each nursing home’s listing in the Best Nursing Homes 2013 searchable database report. Best Nursing Homes 2013 and CMS agree that the information provided is a starting point for consumers and should not take the place of a visit where one can observe and talk to residents and families.
