Helen Hayes Hospital SNF & TCU Receive 5-Star Ratings from Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services

November 7, 2022

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.
