JML Care Center Receives 5-Star Rating from Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)

(Falmouth, August 30, 2012) – Cape Cod Healthcare is pleased to announce that JML Care Center has received a 5-star rating for overall quality from CMS, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. JML also received 5-star ratings for Health Inspection and RN Staffing.

CMS personnel visited JML on March 15, 2011 and conducted on-site inspections and reviewed patient records. Their analysis showed that JML meets their guidelines for a 5-star rating. The health rating takes into account the last 3 years of on-site inspections as well as any complaint investigation findings. RN Staffing ratings are based on the amount of time Registered Nurses (RNs) spend with patients. JML was also cited having no deficiencies from incidents or complaints filed for the last three years.

“We are pleased that CMS recognizes the dedication and hard work of the entire staff of JML,” said Cynthia Lehtinen, President/CEO of JML Care Center, Inc. “Our entire team is dedicated to providing the very best care in a friendly, welcoming environment where every patient is valued and respected.”
