Charleston, W.Va. – May has turned into a historical month as six American Medical Facilities Management (AMFM) centers have received a Five-Star Rating from the Centers for Medicaid/Medicare Services Nursing Home Compare program. This is the first time since the star rating system began in 2009 AMFM has had this many centers receive the highest rating possible.
“Congratulations and thank you to all of our teams for providing top-notch quality care to our patients and communities,” said Tammy Jo Painter, Vice President of Compliance for AMFM. “Our teams continue to lead West Virginia in quality care.”
A Five-Star rating is the highest rating possible a skilled nursing facility (SNF) can receive. The ratings are calculated from a facility’s state survey results, quality measures and staffing levels. A star rating is provided for each of these sources, and then these ratings are combined to calculate an overall rating.
Clay Health Care Center, E.A. Hawse, Webster, Wayne, Clarksburg and Lincoln Nursing & Rehabilitation Centers (N&RC) all received the Five-Star rating.
Fayette and Cameron Nursing & Rehabilitation Centers both received Four-Star ratings. Fayette N&RC moved up rapidly, from a One-Star Rating to the Four-Star Rating, after recently receiving a deficiency-free state inspection.
Bridgeport, Cabell and Hillcrest Health Care Centers, and Wyoming N&RC all received Three-Star ratings.
AMFM operates 17 skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers throughout West Virginia. They operate in Braxton, Boone, Clay, Cabell, Summers, Fayette, Hardy, Greenbrier, Webster, Wayne, McDowell, Lincoln, Wyoming, Harrison (Clarksburg & Bridgeport), Marshall and Mercer counties.
AMFM’s mission is “to exemplify excellence in quality care to our customers by providing an environment that enhances personal growth, individuality, dignity and respect.”
