Transitional Care of Arlington Heights earned a 5-star quality rating from Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for quality care.

CMS created the Five-Star quality rating system to help consumers, their families and caregivers compare skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers more easily.  Centers with 5 stars are considered to have a level of quality that is “much above average.”  The overall 5-star rating is based on health inspections, staffing models and health inspection ratings.

The new Transitional Care post-acute recovery center offers an alternative to nursing home-based rehabilitation services and provides short-term skilled nursing and physical, occupational and speech rehabilitation for patients who are transitioning out of the hospital or other acute care settings with the goal of returning home quicker and healthier.

“As the only stand-alone, purpose-built rehabilitation facility in the northwest suburbs, we are pleased to earn the highly coveted 5-star ranking from CMS,” said Denise Norman, president of Transitional Care Management.

In addition to earning 5-star designation from CMS, the new Transitional Care of Arlington Heights also recently earned Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Nursing Care Center Accreditation and Post-Acute Care Certification.

The post-acute care center also received “Best in Class” recognition for customer service that far exceeds national benchmarks (based on independent Pinnacle satisfaction surveys).

Transitional Care of Arlington Heights offers comfortable, holistic and clinically proven short-term rehabilitative care that helps patients who are recovering from acute and chronic conditions bridge the distance between hospital and home. Managed by the Illinois-based Transitional Care Management, the 120-bed center features primarily private care suites and is the first purpose-built, stand-alone, post-acute care center in the northwest suburbs.
