Focused Care at Hamilton Ranked One of the Highest Rated Nursing Homes in Hamilton Area

Nationally Respected Third Party Analysis Shows Focused Care at Hamilton Leads In Lowest Hospital Readmissions

December 10, 2019

Contact: Rebecca Reid 410-212-3843

(Hamilton, TX) – Focused Care at Hamilton, a skilled nursing care and short term rehab community in Hamilton, was recently named one of the highest rated nursing homes within 50 miles of Hamilton, Texas. The rating, based on data and analysis of Medicare claims by Dexur, a nationally recognized source for quality ratings of various health care settings, indicates Hamilton has one of the lowest hospital readmission rates of any skilled nursing community in the area. Low hospital admission rates are typically associated with high quality care that reduces the necessity for a return to the hospital by a resident. Hospital readmissions often result in higher costs to the healthcare system, a disruption to care and the potential for contracting common hospital infections.

“Focused Care at Hamilton is proud to be declared one of the highest rated skilled nursing communities in the greater Hamilton area,” said Carrie Pratt, Executive Director of Operations at Focused Care at Hamilton. “Focused Care’s commitment to high quality care is evident everyday as we have the expectation of excellence when each one of us walk through our doors to care for our seniors.”

Dexur is the only source for local rankings of hospitals, doctors, nursing homes, hospices, home health agencies and other providers based on data driven objective quality factors such as case volume, readmissions, LOS and mortality rates.
