Pondera Medical Center is proud to announce the achievement of a five star rating in the Extended Care Facility.
This rating is based on continued efforts as a result of the Omnibus Reconciliation Act of 1987, a nursing home reform law, and more recently quality improvement campaigns such as the Advancing Excellence in America’s Nursing Homes, which is a coalition of consumers, healthcare providers, and nursing home professionals.
The star ratings are determined by Medicare and are achieved by excelling in three areas:
Health Inspections, Staffing, and Quality Measures.
Facility ratings are available online and used as a resource for patients when comparing facilities in their area.
The five star rating is an achievement PMC Extended Care Unit takes very seriously. According to the Nursing Home Compare website only 28 percent of the Montana’s nursing homes received a five star overall rating in this period. PMC is proud to be a part of the 28 percent making a difference in our community, truly allowing people of all ages to enjoy the
“Best of Care, Close to Home.”
