Hughes Health & Rehabilitation has received the 2016 Women’s Choice Award® as one of America’s Best for Extended Care. This evidence-based designation is the only extended care award that identifies the country’s best healthcare institutions based on robust criteria that considers female patient satisfaction, clinical excellence, and what women say they want from an extended care facility or nursing home.
This is the third consecutive year that West Hartford-based Hughes Health has been recognized with a Women’s Choice Award.
“To be honored for three consecutive years with a Women’s Choice Award for America’s Best in Extended Care is a testament to the consistent, unwavering and dedicated care our family of caregivers performs every day here at Hughes. We are very grateful for the recognition bestowed upon us by the Women’s Choice Award and other national organizations in 2016. It inspires us to do and be better continuously,” stated Mark J. Finkelstein, vice president of Hughes Health & Rehabilitation.
The list of under 845 winners out of 15,000+ facilities nationwide, including Hughes Health, represents facilities that have 25 or more beds, and have received at least 18 combined stars in the four categories determined by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) five-star rating system. The CMS categories are: general staffing, RN staffing, quality rating and inspection survey rating. Awarded facilities must also have a Medicare certification, full sprinkler systems and no recent history of penalties or fines.
“One of the hardest decisions a woman will ever have to make is to choose a nursing home or extended care facility for a loved one. Reducing the risk of making the wrong healthcare choice is our mission,” said Delia Passi, CEO and Founder of the Women’s Choice Award.
