Indio Skilled Nursing Facility Recognized for Excellence
Named among top in state by federal government

INDIO (Dec. 13, 2010) – The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has recognized Indio Nursing & Rehabilitation Center as the recipient of a distinguished Five-Star rating – the highest distinction a nursing facility can receive.  Indio Nursing & Rehabilitation is the only nursing facility in the Coachella Valley to receive the Five-Star designation.

Only 10% of California’s 1,250 nursing facilities are able to achieve a Five-Star rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The rating is calculated by considering a facility’s staff-to-patient ratio, regulatory compliance and success with quality/clinical measures.

“This recognition reflects the incredible care our staff delivers on a daily basis to our residents,” said Cort Green, Indio Nursing & Rehabilitation Center’s Administrator.  “In an often thankless job, they demonstrate incredible love and compassion to our residents.”
