Consulate Health Care of New Port Richey Achieves
A 5-star CMS Rating

New Port Richey, Florida (May 18, 2017) – Consulate Health Care of New Port Richey, a 120-bed skilled nursing center located in New Port Richey, FL, has achieved a five-star CMS rating. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) created the Five-Star Quality Rating System to help families and caregivers compare post-acute providers more easily. CMS uses an overall scale of one to five stars, and a separate rating for each of the following three sources of information: Health Inspection ratings that contain information from the last three years of onsite inspections, including standard surveys and complaint surveys; Staffing which is rated on the number of hours of care on average provided every day, by nursing staff, to each resident and their level of need; and lastly, the Quality Measures rating which evaluates information on eleven different physical and clinical measures for patients and residents.

For Consulate Health Care, a leading national provider of senior healthcare services and the largest post-acute provider in Florida, achieving a CMS five-star rating shows a commitment to providing the best possible care to those they serve on a daily basis. Consulate’s employees strive every day to make a positive difference in the lives of those entrusted to their care. This national recognition proves their dedication to caring for patients and residents like family, while living out their mission of “Providing Service with Our Hearts and Hands.”

Care centers with five stars are considered to provide care and service that is above average quality. When asked about being recognized with a CMS five-star rating, Executive Director, Daniel Frenden, stated, “I am so proud to be the administrator at Consulate Health Care of New Port Richey. The dedication and focus our staff puts into caring for our patients is extremely impressive, and is a major contributing factor to our care center being named a 5-star building.”
