HHH Long-Term Living Center Earns 5-Star Rating for 6th Year in a Row

December 1, 2017

Hammond-Henry’s Long-Term Care (LTC) Living Center has again received the highest possible overall rating of five stars from The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). CMS annually updates their official government website Nursing Home Compare Five-Star Quality Rankings based on rating nursing homes by three primary categories - health inspections, staffing, and quality measures to develop an overall star rating. This rating system continues to include new quality measures covering successful discharges, emergency visits and readmissions to the hospital. 

CMS determines their star ranking using regular inspections and data compiled from nearly 800 Illinois long-term care facilities serving approximately 100,000 residents.  Less than ten percent (10%) of the facilities achieve five-star status each year.  

“Hammond-Henry LTC remains committed to providing high quality personalized care to all our residents, their families and the communities we serve. Achieving CMS’s highest rating for overall quality for six straight years is very humbling and exciting. It motivates us to continue to innovate and improve as our residents expect and deserve excellent care. This recognition would not have occurred if not for our LTC Manager Dawn Bryner and the LTC outstanding staff that love and care for our residents every day.” states Mark Kuhn, CEO.
