E.A. Hawse and Webster Nursing & Rehabilitation Centers tie for number one spot
Charleston, W.Va. – American Medical Facilities Management (AMFM) has the top two rated skilled nursing and long-term care centers in West Virginia and 8 of the top 30 centers. There are more than 120 facilities throughout the state.
The rankings come from the Centers for Medicaid/Medicare Services Five-Star Rating Program and data compiled and analyzed for long-term trends by the America Health Care Association/National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL).
E. A. Hawse and Webster Nursing & Rehabilitation Centers (N&RC) tied for the number one ranking in West Virginia.
Coming in third is McDowell N&RC, which has earned some remarkable distinctions in 2019. First, the center located in the southern W.Va. coalfields earned their first Five-Star Rating from the Centers for Medicaid/Medicare Services. Then, the center received the Silver National Quality Award from AHCA/NCAL in June.
“For an area of our state that doesn’t get a lot of positive news, this is a shining star for the team at McDowell and everyone in the community,” said AMFM Vice President of Compliance Tammy Jo Painter. “I’m so proud of the team at McDowell for all their hard work and dedication to providing quality care.”
Other centers in the top 30 rankings include Clarksburg N&RC (12th), Summers (13th), Clay Health Care Center (19th), and Cameron and Fayette N&RC tied for 24th.
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.
AMFM operates 18 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, Taylor 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.”
