HealthPark Care Center Earns 5-Star Award
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has recognized HealthPark Care & Rehabilitation Center with its 5-star award for quality measures.
We are honored to receive this award, and I think it speaks volumes about the Lee Memorial Health System employees who dedicate so much of their time and talent to help the patients we serve, says Troy Churchill, HealthPark Care & Rehabilitation Center administrator.
Currently, the center is licensed for 112 residents with half of the population being long-term care and the rest are there for short-term rehabilitation services. Short- term stays are more common now, Troy says. We have developed aggressive rehabilitation programs centered around the resident to assist him/her in a successful transition back to his/her home.
The average short-term patient s length of stay is currently about 20 days at HealthPark Care & Rehabilitation Center. Many patients who have orthopedic procedures or other surgeries stay for rehabilitation until they have recovered enough to perform daily care and function on their own.
We focus on providing high staff to patient ratios at our center, Troy says. This leads to better outcomes and overall experiences for our patients. The CMS started the ratings four years ago as a way for consumers to make informed decisions.
We are excited about receiving this high rating and are already looking to the future for ways that we can service our community better, Troy says.
The CMS is a government agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and oversees Medicaid and other state aid programs.
