A Five-Star Facility
Price Memorial has been awarded a five-star rating as a nursing home that offers outstanding care to the people it serves. Nationally, only three out of ten nursing facilities share this high evaluation by HealthGrades Inc., the leading healthcare ratings company in the U.S.
The company’s ratings take into account a number of factors, including state inspection reports, complaint investigations, repeating problems, and other information about the facility. Price Memorial is one of only three five-star nursing homes for miles around, including communities such as Pacific and Washington.
“The primary focus of a nursing home should be on the quality of care it provides to its residents,” said Brother John Spila, administrator of Price Memorial. “From its mission statement to its workplace culture to the daily individualized care it provides, a nursing home’s best efforts should be continuously directed toward building and maintaining quality.”
“We’re very pleased to be awarded our five-star rating,” said Sandy Kombrink, associate administrator. “When people face the sometimes-difficult decision of choosing a nursing home, they need all of the information they can get. The HealthGrades rating system is one of many tools that can help them make the best decision when selecting a facility to meet their needs.”
Price Memorial is owned and operated by the Franciscan Missionary Brothers. With roots that go back more than 800 years, the Brothers have provided specialized, compassionate care in Eureka and surrounding areas since 1927.
