Richlandtown, PA – Phoebe Richland received a 5-star rating, the highest governmental rating available, by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The annual survey assigns skilled nursing centers one to five stars for quality, staffing and health inspections, plus an overall score. Phoebe Richland was one of only 174 nursing homes to earn an overall rating of five stars in Pennsylvania.
Phoebe Richland was also listed as one of America’s best nursing homes by U.S. News and World Report. The data behind Best Nursing Homes also comes from Nursing Home Compare, a website run by the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
Tracy Roman, Executive Director of Phoebe Richland, says, “I am thrilled that we are a 5-star facility. I have always been very proud of my staff, and I know that they provide compassionate care to all of our residents. In fact, they treat them like family. It is really wonderful when their hard work and dedication is acknowledged in this way. I am truly blessed to be part of such a wonderful team.”
Phoebe Richland’s five star rating and Best Nursing Home ranking is especially exciting given that this spring, the campus begins an 18-month expansion which will include a personal care facility featuring 72 studio and one bedroom apartments and four semi-private rooms, as well as updates to the current Health Care Center. This expansion meets a current and growing need in upper Bucks County for adults in need of Phoebe Richland’s 5-star rated services.
