We have always known it, but the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) have made it official. St. Joseph’s Home for the Elderly is a Five-Star Nursing Home. CMS evaluates facilities in five areas; Overall Quality, Health Inspections, Nurse Staffing, Staffing and Quality Measures. Each facility is assigned a rating of a low of one star to a high of five stars. St. Joseph’s Home received a perfect five star rating in each category. The CMS ratings for all facilities are available to view on www.medicare.gov on the Nursing Home Compare web page.
St. Joseph’s Home is one of only three facilities, out of approximately 500 nursing homes within the Chicago Metropolitan area that received the highest ranking.
Many thanks to our wonderful staff and volunteers who help us make St. Joseph’s Home a true home – not just a place to work, or volunteer. In the footsteps of St. Jeanne Jugan, we have worked very hard to provide the best medical care possible, while creating a beautiful family spirit, where all are treated with love and respect.
While this Five Star Rating is a wonderful honor and confirmation of our hard work, it is the smiles on the faces of our Residents that are our true reward.
