The search for five-star care in skilled nursing and rehabilitation just became easier for Westchester residents seeking the best care for their loved ones. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) awarded its highest overall rating — five stars — to United Hebrew of New Rochelle.
“We’re honored to recognized for the superior care we provide to our residents, and to be included in the top tier of nursing homes in New York State and across the nation,” says Rita Mabli, president & CEO. “The larger reward, of course, is seeing our approach help our residents live high-quality lives while feeling safe and at home.”
The CMS five-star rating is the latest in a series of accolades United Hebrew has received locally, regionally and nationally for its patient-centered care, including the U.S. News “Top Performing” rating for its short-term rehabilitation facility; the American College of Healthcare Administrators (ACHCA) Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award; and the Women’s Choice Award.
“The recognition affirms the reputation of United Hebrew’s skilled nursing facility,” Ms. Mabli adds. Located on a 7.5-acre campus, United Hebrew also provides supportive care services including award-winning assisted living, Alzheimer’s and dementia care, independent senior housing, hospice and palliative care, and home care services.
CMS created the Five-Star Rating System to help individuals, families, and caregivers compare nursing homes easily. The federal agency identified key areas related to the quality of care, including health inspections, staffing ratios, and quality measures. Those facilities that achieve a five-star rating are considered to deliver a quality of care significantly above average.
Ms. Mabli says the recognition is the result of incredible teamwork from the dedicated staff at United Hebrew. “We have an amazing, committed staff — many of whom have been with us for several years — who work across all of our departments: admissions, nursing, rehab, environmental services, dietary services, recreation, social work, and more. They work together tirelessly and seamlessly, and they develop long-term relationships with our residents, whom we care for like family.”
