5-Star CMS Rating

As a Medicare-certified care center, Linden Woods Village undergoes a rigorous onsite inspection survey by CMS staff each year. A CMS Five-Star quality rating ranks Linden Woods Village in the top 10 percent of retirement communities in the state.

CMS created the Five-Star quality rating system to help individuals, families and caregivers compare retirement communities and rehabilitation centers more easily. The Five-Star rating system is based on information from annual state health inspections, staffing ratios, and a range of different quality measures such as cleanliness, staff responsiveness, rehospitalization, infections, and pain management. Scores in each of these three individual areas are then used to determine the overall star rating.
