Top Rating from Federal Regulators

Federal regulators with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently awarded Surrey Place Care Center with five stars, its top star rating.

Surrey Place Care Center provides comprehensive therapy including joint replacement, restorative, heart failure and neurological therapy programs. Additional services include short-term, respite and long-term care; outpatient therapy; outpatient wound care; vibrant quality of life and spiritual programming; 7-day a week admissions, and more.

Surrey Place Care Center is one of 118 locations operated by Signature HealthCARE, a Louisville, Ky.-based provider of long-term care, rehabilitation and health care services.

“Our staff is passionate about providing quality health care, and I am proud to see this exceptional rating from CMS,” Brenda Lacy, CEO at Surrey Place Care Center said. “It is because of their daily commitment, diligence, hard work and compassion that we received the five-star rating which, most importantly, is a reflection of the care we are providing and that our residents and patients so deserve.”

Under the five-star rating system, nursing homes are assessed in three main categories: health inspections, quality measures and staffing. The overall rating combines scores received in each of the three categories. The system is intended to help consumers, families and caregivers easily compare nursing homes.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is the federal government agency tasked with oversight of nursing home quality.
