5 Stars for The Lutheran Home: River Falls

Posted on Tue, May 04, 2010

River Falls, WI–The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently awarded The Lutheran Home: River Falls an overall 5-star rating—the highest possible. CMS’s “5-Star Quality Rating System” includes surveys, staffing and quality measures in addition to the overall rating. This rating system is used for skilled nursing facilities throughout the United States.

Twylah Wieland, Administrator of The Lutheran Home Campus, states, “The accomplishments of our wonderful staff at The Lutheran Home this past year are shown through their dedication, care, love and compassion for our residents. I am so very proud of our staff to have achieved a 5-Star Quality Rating for our facility.”

The 5-star quality rating’s purpose is to help families easily learn about and compare skilled nursing facilities. This survey information is helpful to consumers because of the differences in the type and quality of care and services provided by nursing homes across the country.

Wieland shares, “Our staff is committed to providing our residents with optimum care, whether that is spiritual, mental, physical or emotional. We work closely with our residents and their families to provide the care needed on an individual basis and enjoy building these relationships.”

The Lutheran Home: River Falls has joined The Lutheran Home: Belle Plaine in Minnesota and St. Michael’s Lutheran Home in Fountain City, Wisconsin, in having a 5-star rating. We are excited to have all of our homes recognized for providing outstanding care! Each of these locations is dedicated to providing both spiritual and physical care.
