For the 12th consecutive year, Westview Health Care Center, a 103 bed inpatient and outpatient skilled nursing facility located in Dayville, Connecticut has once again been reported to be among America’s Best Nursing Facilities in the United States with a 5 Star Overall Rating according to US News and World Report; and The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
The ratings come from the federal government’s Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Nursing Home Compare data on over 15,500 nationwide Medicare and Medicaid-certified nursing homes in the country. CMS sets and enforces standards for nursing homes enrolled in Medicare and Medicaid nationally. The facility’s overall rating is geared to its performance in state conducted health and fire safety inspections, nurse and therapy staffing, and quality of medical care. The ratings are combined to produce an overall rating of one to five stars. The Nursing Home Compare report has detailed information that allows consumers to compare information with all other nursing homes in America. Westview has remained one of the United State’s Best 5 Star overall rated facilities since the inception of the US News and World Report published article 12 years ago and since the inception of the CMS 5 star ratings program.
Additionally, Westview is one of only 7 nursing facilities in Connecticut and the only facility in Windham, Tolland, New Haven and Litchfield Counties to achieve a perfect 5 star rating in every category from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for staffing levels, quality indicators, inspection results and fire safety inspections as of January 1, 2020. The facility is also the highest staffed facility for nursing and therapies in Windham County and ranked the 16th highest staffed nursing facility in the State of Connecticut.
“This mark of distinction is a direct reflection of the dedication and work ethic of our remarkable team of health care professionals, past and present” stated Westview Administrator David T. Panteleakos. “This National achievement would not be possible without our amazing staff; and we will continue to work hard in order to provide a better quality of life for the patients and residents we serve, who are the ultimate beneficiaries of our efforts.”
The nationally rated facility is also poised to open this fall a new 75 unit independent and assisted living facility, now under construction, called Country Living at Westview Commons.
