Providence Extended Care, Transitional Care Center recognized for quality, health and staffing in nursing home ratings
ANCHORAGE, Alaska – The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has recognized two Providence care facilities for high-quality care in its latest ratings of nursing homes.
Providence Extended Care (PEC) earned five-star ratings in four categories and Providence Transitional Care Center (PTCC) earned five-star ratings in all five evaluation categories. CMS evaluates nursing homes and provides ratings Overall Quality, Health Inspection, Quality Measures, Staffing, and RN Staffing.
“Earning five-star ratings shows how much our caregivers are committed to the well-being of our residents and fellow caregivers,” said Angela Lewis, administrator for Providence Extended Care and Providence Transitional Care Center. “Families can be assured that the care their loved ones receive at Providence is of the highest quality.”
CMS created the Five-Star Quality Rating System to help consumers, their families, and caregivers compare nursing homes more easily and to help identify areas about which people may want to ask questions. Nursing homes with five stars are considered to have “much above average” quality and nursing homes with one star are considered to have quality “much below average.”
