US News and World Report has published the 2012 list of top performing nursing homes in the nation. North Central Health Care's nursing home operation ranked 6th in the state of Wisconsin and in the top 10% in the entire nation.
The ranking is based upon a rating from the Centers from Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Nursing home overall quality is based on ratings for health inspections by CMS and the Department of Quality Assurance; clinical quality outcomes such as pressure ulcers, pain rates, and facility acquired infections; and total licensed nurse and nursing assistant staffing hours per resident day.
North Central Health Care's ranking is a testament to the organization's vision to be the leading provider of a fully inegrated continuum of care while delivering quality, innovative services in a fiscally responsible manner.
Our organization wishes to acknowledge the employees of NCHC who demonstrate a commitment to participating in our journey to excellence in quality.
