Heritage Pointe Senior Living Communities Earn Prestigious Five-Star Rating from Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)

“We are so proud to have the dedication and hard work of our team recognized in such a prestigious way,” said Chod Boxell, CEO of Heritage Pointe Communities in Warren, Indiana.

Heritage Pointe of Ft. Wayne, Heritage Pointe of Warren, and Heritage Pointe of Huntington senior living communities have each received the prestigious five-star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Only the top nursing homes achieve this honor.

CMS’s Five-Star Quality Rating System was developed in 2008 to help compare healthcare centers. A key performance indicator, the system evaluates nursing homes based on three dimensions: health inspections derived from on-site inspections, staffing based on the ratio of licensed staff to residents, and quality measures for how the community is caring for physical and clinical needs.

Earning a five-star rating from CMS is a prestigious achievement, reflecting a nursing home’s dedication to superior resident care and high standards.

As individuals navigate the process of finding the best skilled nursing for their loved ones, the CMS Five-Star Quality Rating System can help guide them toward the communities that have been recognized as being among the best.

“The five-star rating we’ve achieved across all three of the communities is a testament to their collaboration and teamwork, strong leadership, and consistent commitment to delivering excellent care,” said Boxell.
