DeKalb Area Retirement Center – Oak Crest has been awarded a Five-Star Quality Rating by the United States government.
“With more than 16,000 Medicare certified nursing homes across the nation, the 1-5 star rating system was created to help consumers, their families and caregivers compare nursing homes easily,” Stephen Cichy, Oak Crest executive director, said in a news release. “The reality is that nursing homes vary in the quality of care and services they provide. The government rating system provides information on three critical areas: health inspection results, quality measures and staffing levels.
“To receive a 5-star rating confirms what residents, staff and families already know – Oak Crest services and care are second to none,” Cichy said in the release.
Cichy congratulated the Oak Crest Board of Trustees and staff on this accomplishment especially during these trying times.
Oak Crest is located at 2944 Greenwood Acres Drive in DeKalb.
