Six Avante Centers Earn Five-Star Quality Rating

Jun 19, 2014

Congratulations go out to 6 Avanté Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Centers that have earned 5-Stars in their overall quality rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).


The CMS Five-Star Quality Rating System rates the nation’s Skilled Nursing Facilities on a 1 to 5 Star scale, 5 being the highest, based on the results of onsite surveys to determine their compliance with Federal and State regulations during a twelve-month period. Facilities are rated on the results of their performance in complying with healthcare standards, quality measures, and staffing, with only the top 10 percent of nursing homes being eligible for the Five-Star Rating.


CMS computes the Five-Star Ratings each month based on the most current survey data it receives for each facility. Established in 2008, the rankings reflect federal criteria set by the CMS and are posted on the CMS Nursing Home Comparewebsite.


The CMS Five-Star Rating System is designed to promote transparency and accountability across the industry, and assist consumers in making choices.


Under the CMS Five-Star Quality Rating System, 5-Stars equals “much above average”, 4-Stars equals “above average”, 3-Stars equals “ average”, 2-Stars equals “below average”, 1-Star equals “much below average”.
