Helen Hayes Hospital is happy to announce that the Skilled Nursing Facility and Transitional Care Unit at HHH once again received five-star ratings from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ Five-Star Quality Rating System at the end of October 2022. Updated quarterly, this ranking recognizes the Hospital’s continued position as a top-tier healthcare facility based on a high quality of patient care, staff expertise, and excellent rehabilitation outcomes.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services created its Five-Star Quality Rating System to help patients, families, and caregivers in the selection of nursing home facilities. Facilities are assigned an overall rating from 1 to 5, with five-star facilities designated as providing care that is much above average quality. Facilities are also given separate ratings based on three independent factors: health inspections, staffing, and quality measures.
