In addition to the 25 years of service to the community, the hospital announced its Subacute Unit has once again been awarded a 5-Star rating by CMS (the centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services), which is the highest rating for nursing homes and long-term care facilities.
Nursing Home Compare, an online report card produced by CMS, provides quality ratings to each of the nation's 15,000 Medicare and Medicaid-certified nursing and long-term care facilities. Each is rated from a low (1 Star) to the highest (5 Stars) based on three critical areas: health inspection results, quality measures, and staffing levels. The quality rating system was created to help consumers, their families, and caregivers compare nursing homes and long-term care facilities easily. Nursing homes vary in the quality of care and services they provide, and this quality rating system provides an overview of the individual care their loved ones will receive.
“We are extremely proud of the compassion and dedication of our staff through 25 years of service,” said Iris Lai, Alhambra Hospital Medical Center CEO. “This is true validation of the standard of excellence in quality and specialized care given to each and every patient and resident at Alhambra Hospital Medical Center.”
“It is the mission of Alhambra Hospital Medical Center to provide quality care that meets the community needs,” said Susanna Tung, director of Subacute. “I am very proud that our Subacute was not only the first facility that opened in the San Gabriel Valley but also a unit that is awarded by CMS with a 5-Star rating.”
