The Gables at Green Pastures Receives Top Rating in Union County

The Gables at Green Pastures was recently featured on the 2013 U.S. News Best Nursing Homes list. The list was used to create an online searchable database to highlight the highest-rated facilities matching a user’s needs.

Data for this listing comes from Nursing Home Compare, a website run by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The Gables at Green Pastures is the only Union County long term care facility to receive an overall Five-Star Quality Rating from CMS this year. Overall results come from careful review of health inspections and data from staffing and quality measures.

“We’re proud to receive this top honor recognizing the quality care we provide,” says Laurie Whittington, Administrator of The Gables. “At all levels of our organization, we focus on excellent healthcare, resident centered decision making, respect, and compassion. We want each resident, and their families, to feel confident in the care they receive and comfortable during their stay with us, be it a few weeks or many years.”

The U.S. News Best Nursing Homes list and Five-Star Rating System were created to help consumers, their families, and caregivers in comparing nursing homes and to help identify potential questions for care facilities.

The Gables at Green Pastures is a 112-bed, Medicare/Medicaid certified facility offering short-term rehabilitation, respite, long-term and hospice care. A secured dementia unit provides a high level of care for those with special needs. Additional features include round-the-clock skilled nursing care, access to a variety of specialists, and convenient on-site physical, occupational, nutrition and speech therapies.
