Accura Healthcare earns 5 Star Award
CHEROKEE - Accura Healthcare, 921 Riverview Drive in Cherokee, was recently awarded the Five Star Quality Rating by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), following an unannounced, intensive review by CMS. Nursing Homes are rated on Health Inspections, Staffi ng, and Quality Measures, and only the best ten (10) nursing homes in each state receive a five star rating. The middle 70 per cent receive two, three or four stars, and the bottom 20 per cent receive just one star. Last week, the staff at Accura, including Medical Director Dr. Wesley Parker, got together to celebrate Accura's great achievement (pictured).
