Palm Garden of Port St Lucie receives 5-Star CMS Rating

 

Sarasota, Florida – Palm Garden Healthcare is proud to announce Palm Garden of Port St. Lucie has been awarded an overall 5-star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

CMS created the Five-Star Quality Rating System to help families and caregivers compare postacute providers more easily. CMS uses an overall scale of one to five stars, and a separate rating for each of the following three sources of information: Health Inspection ratings that contain information from the last three years of onsite inspections, including standard surveys and complaint surveys; Staffing which is rated on the number of hours of care on average provided every day, by nursing staff, to each resident and their level of need; and lastly, the Quality Measures (QMs) rating which evaluates information on eleven different physical and clinical measures. Care centers with five stars are considered to provide care and service that is above average quality.

“We see the 5-Star Rating for Palm Garden of Port St. Lucie as validation for a lot of good work. Our mission is to enrich the lives of those entrusted to our care through clinical excellence and world-class service. CMS 5 Five-star recognition puts us among the best of the very best,” said Luke Neumann, Vice-president of Service and Relationship Development for Palm Garden Healthcare.

“We are just so proud of our Port St. Lucie team members who worked tirelessly to achieve 5-Star. Our commitment is to continue this history of clinical and service excellence through FASTtrack, our new and proprietary program aimed specifically at helping folks achieve independence. We’ve made a commitment as the employer of choice in St. Lucie County to make sure those who serve our mission are rewarded spiritually and emotionally. Without our Palm Garden Team Members this achievement would not be possible. CMS 5-Star Rating is affirmation we are on the right track and building something quite special.”
