Good News and Strong Choice for Healthcare Recovery

There are many important factors to consider when choosing a place for rehabilitation after a hospitalization.  Our residents are not the only ones who can choose Westminster Canterbury Richmond for skilled nursing recovery.  Richmond community members may ask their physician to consider referring to us.  Here is some good news about our Mary Morton Parsons Health Center. 

Westminster Canterbury Richmond’s Mary Morton Parsons Health Center has been ranked first among the top-ranked nursing homes in Virginia with the lowest hospital readmission rates. Westminster Canterbury Richmond also ranks among the top 100 in the United States for lowest readmissions. These rankings are based on Dexur’s analysis of Medicare claims data from October 2015 to September 2018.

Dexur is a data-driven hospital and healthcare news and research service. They perform in-depth data analyses, examining large public and proprietary databases such as medical claims data to produce news, articles and research on hospitals, physicians and United States regions.

CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) has initiated new programs to measure readmissions when a patient is discharged from a hospital to a skilled nursing facility (SNF) and then readmitted back to any hospital within 30 days of the original discharge. Patient outcomes and financial penalties are associated with these hospital readmission metrics.
