CMS rankings

CMS established its nationwide system to provide consumers with information about various facets of nursing home care. The overall quality rating on the Nursing Home Compare web site (cms.gov) is based on its ranking in five categories: health inspections, overall quality, quality measures, staffing, and RN staffing. Memorial Care Center received five-star rankings in all five categories.
