Westchester Village is a 5-Star CMS Rated Community

LENEXA, Kansas – Westchester Village, a continuing care retirement community in Lenexa, KS, is proud to announce they received a five-star rating from theCenters for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

As a Medicare-certified care center, Westchester Village undergoes a rigorous onsite inspection by CMS staff each year. A CMS Five-Star quality rating ranks Westchester Village in the top 10% of retirement communities in the state, according to the Nursing Home Compare Five-Star Quality Rating System: Technical Users’ Guide.

Westchester Village’s Executive Director Courtney O’Connor said, “I’m so excited for the Westchester team because this five-star rating shows how much we value and care for our residents, and it recognizes the hard work every team member gives each day.”

CMS created the Five-Star quality rating system to help individuals, families and caregivers compare retirement communities and rehabilitation centers more easily. The Five-Star rating system is based on information from annual state health inspections, staffing ratios, and a range of different quality measures such as cleanliness, staff responsiveness, rehospitalization, infections, and pain management. Scores in each of these three individual areas are then used to determine the overall star rating.
