Salter HealthCare one of Massachusetts’s oldest and leading rehabilitation and skilled nursing providers, today announced that all three of their rehabilitation and skilled nursing facilities have been awarded a prestigious 5-Star quality rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the highest possible rating. Part of the government’s 5-Star rating program, this widely used consumer tool is considered to be the gold standard for individuals needing to evaluate the nation’s more than 16,000 nursing homes.
Aberjona, Winchester and Woburn Rehabilitation & Nursing Center’s 5-Star rating each was achieved from the results of their respective annual Massachusetts Department of Public Health survey inspections over the past three years. The survey assesses the quality care delivered, nursing staffing levels and outcome measurements. The 5-Star rating, a requirement by CMS, is an important guide in determining placement of a patient or for employment.
“That our patients receive the best possible care is something that is of the utmost importance to the Salter family and our staff. We work very hard to deliver perfect care and it’s exciting to be recognized in this way, especially as we embark on a year-long celebration of our 60th anniversary,” said Bob Driscoll, Chief Operating Officer for Salter HealthCare.
Having also received recognition this year for each facility as a Best Nursing Home by U.S. News & World Report, Salter HealthCare communities provide an array of services, including specialized rehabilitation and post-acute, short-term care programs for those recovering from surgery or hospitalization, comprehensive subacute care for those with acute illnesses or injury as well as long-term, respite and hospice care. Family-owned, the company is one of the oldest continually operating family owned healthcare facilities in New England.
