Commack, NY, August 20, 2017 --(PR.com)-- Gurwin Jewish Nursing & Rehabilitation Center is proud to announce it has earned the 5-star Overall Quality Rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The prestigious accolade is awarded to the top 20% of facilities in the nation in recognition of their achievements in three categories: health inspections, quality measures and staffing.

“We are pleased to have been recognized as a 5-star facility by CMS,” said Stuart B. Almer, Gurwin’s Administrator/COO. “We are particularly proud of our 5-star rating in the quality measures category, which quantifies the level of care being provided to our long-term and short-term rehabilitation residents. Some of the measures include effective pain management, pressure ulcer incidence rate, the rate of falls, and the risk of hospitalization/rehospitalization. Gurwin exceeds the state and national averages in virtually every category.” Almer noted that the rankings are updated by CMS quarterly.

According to Herbert H. Friedman, Executive Vice President/CEO, Gurwin opened almost three decades ago with a mission to continuously strive for excellence, and the 5-star rating is a commentary on the culture that has been fostered at the 460-bed facility. “This recognition from CMS is a testament to the dedication of our staff, from nursing to rehabilitation to housekeeping, for the hard work and quality care they provide our residents on a daily basis. We commend their efforts for making Gurwin a top facility for patients who seek the highest quality in rehabilitation services and as well for those elderly and frail residents who call Gurwin home.”

Gurwin Jewish Nursing & Rehabilitation Center is a 5-star, 460-bed nursing care facility located in Commack, Long Island and is part of the Gurwin family of healthcare services. Gurwin offers skilled nursing care, short-term rehabilitation, medical/post-surgical subacute care, respiratory and ventilator dependent care, an award-winning medical adult day care program and a social adult day care program, on-site dialysis, memory care, palliative and hospice care, home care, assisted living, and a proposed independent living community, Fountaingate Gardens, all on a 67-acre campus.
