IHM Health Care Center named one of country’s best

MONROE, Mich. – In less than three years of operation, the 58-bed IHM Health Care Center (HCC) was recognized by U.S. News as one of the country’s best nursing facilities, one of just 87 five-star nursing homes in the state. The HCC opened in July 2010.

Data came from Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the organization that sets the standards for nursing homes enrolled in Medicare or Medicaid. It also enforces those standards. CMS assigns facilities a rating of one to five stars in each of three categories:

state-conducted health inspections; nursing and physical therapy staffing; and quality of medical care.

Of the 16,000 nursing homes reviewed, the IHM HCC consistently rated higher than state or national averages. Among nurse staffing for instance, HCC nurses spent an average of three hours and 21 minutes with residents. The state average is one hour and 34 minutes, and the national average is one hour and 36 minutes.

“We provide a healing atmosphere of serenity and spirituality, all while delivering excellent health care,” says Jeffrey Ceo, LNHA, Health Care Center administrator. “Our staff provides quality and compassionate care to residents and their activities of daily living. In fact, our mission statement talks about our commitment to creating an atmosphere for residents to live the highest quality of life possible.”
