Lee Health Nursing Facilities Earn ‘Gold Standard’ in Quality and Safety Rankings
From Leslie Vollmer,Senior Administrator of Skilled Nursing Services & Post Acute Intake and Business Development at Lee Health.
At Lee Health, we are committed to providing high quality care to the community we serve.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released their most recent Five-Star Quality Ratings, awarding Gulf Coast Medical Center Skilled Nursing, HealthPark Care & Rehabilitation Center and Lee Memorial Hospital Skilled Nursing with five stars, which is the highest Star Ratings possible.
We are honored to be recognized by CMS in this way because it speaks to the kind of care our patients can expect to receive at our skilled nursing facilities.
CMS created the five-star system – the gold standard in quality and safety rankings – to help consumers, their families and caregivers compare health care facilities. CMS ranks facilities from one to five stars.
The Gulf Coast Medical Center Skilled Nursing Unit, HealthPark Care & Rehabilitation Center and Lee Memorial Hospital Skilled Nursing Unit each received top scores in ‘Overall Quality’ in the five-star ratings report from CMS.
The Gulf Coast Medical Center Skilled Nursing Unit and Lee Memorial Hospital Skilled Nursing Unit also received five stars across the board in all categories (Health Inspection, Quality Measures, Staffing and RN Staffing).
The scores awarded by CMS are based on previously reported quality and safety data points including, patient satisfaction, value and outcomes, among others.
Thank you to all of the doctors, advanced health providers, nurses and support staff for their commitment to providing compassionate and exceptional care in our nursing facilities.
Lee Health’s skilled nursing facilities are equipped with state of the art technology, compassionate providers and a positive environment to ensure the best care is brought to every patient.
