Genesis Nursing Homes Earn High Ratings
Westwing Place at Genesis Medical Center, DeWitt, and Illini Restorative Care, Silvis, Ill., have recently earned 5-star overall quality ratings from three ratings sources.
Nursing Home Compare, ratings of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS); USA Today and U.S. News all rated Westwing and Illini Restorative Care at five stars, the highest rating available.
Genesis Senior Living, Aledo, earned a 4-star rating from all three sources, which is the highest rating among Mercer County senior facilities. The overall quality ratings are based upon health inspections, staffing and quality measures.
The Genesis Senior Living facilities maintained their high quality ratings in a year when nearly one third of the nation’s nursing homes received lower scores reflecting revised, tougher standards.
“We are proud of the quality of care provided every day to our residents,’’ said Glen Roebuck, executive director of post acute services, Genesis Health System. “We try to care for each resident the way we would care for our own family and loved ones and in fact, in communities where are facilities are located, our residents may actually be the family or friend of one of our staff.
“It takes a team of providers who truly care about quality to achieve these top ratings. To be able to earn these ratings on a consistent basis is a tribute to their skills and compassion.’’
Illini Restorative Care, Westwing Place in DeWitt and Genesis Senior Living, Aledo, all give residents quick, convenient access to hospital and health services. All three facilities are attached to Genesis Medical Center campuses.
“If our residents need laboratory, radiology, a surgical procedure, physicians office or hospitalization, the trip is literally down the hall, not across town in an ambulance,’’ Roebuck explained.
Genesis Senior Living also offers independent senior apartments at Crosstown Square, Silvis.
